Independence Day, 2011


My Grandfather Stahl smuggled himself out of Latvia, coming to America as a young man. Celebrate it. On this day of celebration, let us also remember that the story of America-the story of freedom- must be a story big enough and broad enough to encompass the stories of all who yearn to be free, for this is the meaning of our creed, our self evident truth that all of us are created equal.
