Some say we’ve lost our way. We guess that remains to be seen. It’s pretty clear we have some work to do.
But it’s also clear that this country and its “gaudy” star-spangled flag mean something to people beyond our borders and that being an American means more than draping yourself in red, white, and blue and a foam Uncle Sam top hat.
Here’s hoping that on this Fourth of July we can draw a little closer and find our way again. There’s a lot riding on it.
