Happy 4th

I love this country. I lived overseas for three years way back in the 80s and I have never forgotten what it was like to be away from home or how happy I was to come back.

But here’s the other thing I learned: It is possible to love your country while at the same time realizing we have much work to do to make it better. Not again, just better.

Don’t fall for false dichotomies like “Love It Or Leave It”.

And really don’t fall for corrosive nostalgia that attempts to convince you we should go back to a time when things were better.

Instead, let’s hope we can move forward in making America better for all of us.
