Independence Day, 2011
JULY 4, 2011
Today, 235 years later, the world measures the morality of a nation by the extent to which its people are free to live their own story, the extent to which its government secures to its people life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. My Grandfather Stahl smuggled himself out of Latvia, coming to America as a young man. This is the voice of America that we hear in the messy discordant atonal arrhythmic dissonance that is our culture wars. Celebrate it.
