I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
On this Fourth of July then, I encourage everyone to remember what ideals this country was built upon. Remember the outstanding men AND WOMEN who worked so tirelessly to make a place where opportunity and freedom are the cornerstones for a better life. Remember that our future depends on the decisions made today.
And don't forget to be a nice human to your fellow humans. Hate is infesting the land currently. We need more smilepower. Urgently. Be the reason someone else feels good.
Be like fireworks. Burst with light and color. Rumble with power. Spray fun in all directions. Collect oohs and ahhs.
Sparkle in the darkness.
