The Experiment Continues
“The Declaration of Independence was always our vision of who we wanted to be, our ideal of freedom and justice, how we were going to be different, and what the American experiment was going to be about.” – Marian Wright Edelman
Beyond the picnics, a day off and fireworks, may we grasp and appreciate the meaning of this day.
Live it out in thoughts, words and actions.
Of independence, of freedom, of an experiment that continues still.
Diversity of thought, ability to speak up, to be different.
Let freedom ring along side peace.
Let us return again and again to the foundation, threads and colors that bind us together, especially in our differences.
Independence and interdependence for all.
Happy 4th of July.
“Independence Day is not just a date on the calendar; it is a flame that ignites the spirit of every individual, reminding us that freedom is our birthright and courage is our strength. This day reminds us that true independence is not merely the absence of external control, but the resolute presence of self-determination. As we commemorate the valor of our fathers who valiantly fought for our freedom, let us honor their sacrifices by cultivating a society that values diversity, upholds justice, and champions the well-being of all. Our actions today will lay the foundation for a prosperous and harmonious nation.”― Aloo Denish
