Happy 4th, friends! I try to remember that it’s a process, this thing called history. Women have had the right to vote for only a hundred years. I believe that we have a long way to go. We’re a young country, a culture actively evolving, and if we’re lucky we will continue to get wiser and better with time. I dream similar dreams as those who came before. We are connected by a common situation. This is a holiday that started out as Independence Day, but one day it may become Interdependence Day. When we build more bridges than bombs we will be closer to that reality, the true situation that we are all one.
