about

Today is America's national holiday. I hope you're having a fun and safe time commemorating our independence from the British, and celebrating in broad strokes the awesomeness of being American. I hope you're also open to broadening the definition of who gets to hang out here, and be a part of this big American party. An election year is a tricky time to celebrate something as open to interpretation as Americanness. In a real sense, its definition is up for grabs this November. Independence Day is a good time to reflect on what we want to be. For me, this year the clearer choice is about what we must not be. Enjoy your fireworks and American Beer (the best in the world bar none), and mull it over while you eat something fried or grilled. Happy 4th!

lyrics

Count the beats between the breaths you take
Count the moments it takes to change your mind
And on the wind we search for signs
And from every ray of light that breaks the clouds
We shield our eyes
And take as evidence that God is on our side

And everywhere in America
A different letter of the truth we're sold
And on the wind we search for signs
And from every ray of light that breaks the clouds
We shield our eyes
And take as evidence that God is on our side
