Independence Day, 2011
JULY 4, 2011
The birth of a new nation-our nation-conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. All of our stories intersect on that day, 235 years ago, on July 4, 1776 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania the United States of America becomes the first and only nation in the world to profess this self-evident ideal, that all men are created equal. My Grandfather Stahl smuggled himself out of Latvia, coming to America as a young man. Celebrate it.
