Independence Day

It is the eve of the day Americans celebrate the birth of their country, this experiment in modern liberal democracy. But as "bombs burst in air" aka fireworks light up the night sky, we need to pause and reflect on what it is we are celebrating: a representational democracy that believes in equality, justice, liberty.
We may need to reflect also on if the current administration, leaders and policies truly reflect a government that represents its people, and strives for equality, justice and liberty.
Take the time to re-read the Declaration of Independence, The Preamble to the constitution , and the Bill of Rights.
Do we practice what we preach?
