Independence Day, 2019. I’m thankful for the opportunities this country affords, and for the history that this country has made. I worry too, for the choices we do make as a nation, and for what the next ten, twenty-five, or hundred years will bring. I won’t see 2119, but I’m planning on making it to 2100.
(My goal was 2,095, but what’s five more years?)
The world has changed dramatically, and continues to do so. As the fireworks ignite tonight, think of what that looked like 243 years ago – and what our descendants will see 243 years from now.
