I have a lot of feelings and thoughts about the way my country is run and the current state of our society. Many of them are positive, but not all. There is certainly room for improvement, which I believe could realistically happen if more people were inclined to regular times of reflection and deep (especially spiritual) thought.
Alas, this is not a day for pointing out what has gone wrong. Today is a day for celebration and for hope.
Stay safe out there, and Happy Birthday, America!
Until the next chapter,
