🇺🇸Comrades, family & friends,

May this Independence Day bring prosperity, harmony and optimism. I wish you and your family a wonderful time on this special day in American history. Take a moment to reflect on those that have made sacrifices to ensure a better future for us. Also, don’t hesitate to do your part in making this a more prosperous future for someone else.

Enjoy the blessings of freedom and independence, but also continue to strive to unite for a better nation. As we continue to recover from the COVID pandemic, let us practice patience & humility because we don’t know what the next man/woman is facing or have faced. From child care issues, elder care, financial and food insecurity, etc., we all have had difficulties and challenges for the past year or so.

We, as American citizens and human beings, have more things that unite us instead of divide us. The next time a potential conflict arises look for similarities in the person rather than what you don’t like and/or your differences. #AccentuateThePositive

In conclusion, a few quotes of wisdom...

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. -Nelson Mandela

In the face of impossible odds, people who love their country can change it. -Barack Obama

The fact is, with every friendship you make and every bond you establish, you are shaping the image of America projected to the rest of the world. -Former First Lady of the United States, Mrs. Michelle Obama

You cannot separate peace and freedom. Because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. -Malcolm X

The essence of America, that which really unites us, is not ethnicity or nationality or religion. It is an idea, and what an idea it is - that you can come from humble circumstances and do great things. -Condoleeza Rice

Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong. -James Bryce

I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom. -Bob Dylan

Peace & blessings.
