In a Mirror, Dimly

So, it’s July 4th, and what are we celebrating?

America- land of the free and home of the brave? Or America- land of vested interests and tiny world views? America- land of opportunity and open doors? Or America- don’t come in unless you look like me (i.e white and Christian)?

I don’t know what to feel lately. Proud or embarrassed? Optimistic or fearful? I’ll fly the flag, not really knowing why. The days of blindly ascribing to some idyllic view of America The Beautiful are over. But there’s always hope.
