July 4th

“America is known as the land of freedom. Independence Day is the day that freedom is celebrated. Some parts of America’s history have been problematic, and the long struggle for equal rights for all citizens has confirmed that freedom is inherent in American values. Because freedom is at the heart of the nation’s aspirations, everyone in America has the ability to speak, worship, make decisions for themselves, and protest peacefully without any government interference. Although freedom in America means that people can express themselves as they please, so long as their actions do not infringe on another person’s freedom, recent protests in America are meant to create “a more perfect union.” Whether it’s demonstrations for Black Lives Matter, or LGBT rights, or the Women’s March, America’s activists are hoping to improve democracy in the world’s most advanced nation. The collective, courageous action we are now seeing everywhere in America aims to preserve civil liberties and justice for all citizens. In that sense, it is inspiring to witness that successive generations of Americans have endeavored to shape the future of the republic.”
