Happy INTERdependence Day! As we celebrate this Independence Day in the US, a reminder, (inspired by activist Fannie Lou Hamer), that we can’t truly celebrate our country's freedom or status as the "Land of the Free" until we grant ALL of our citizens the same freedoms. Which requires that we acknowledge our interconnectedness, our shared humanity, and move to grant everyone the same respect, rights, liberties, opportunities and justice, irrespective of their race, gender, socioeconomic status, faith or politics.
Though July 4th may look and feel very different for many of us this year given the context of the parallel pandemics of the coronavirus and racial injustice, may we still use this opportunity to reflect upon how we can each do our part to build more bridges and mobilize for greater equality and freedoms for all. Happy 4th everyone, stay safe, stay cool, stay strong!
