What does it mean for any one of us?
Is it a day we claim for ourselves?
Or, a day we share with a community?
Is it a day of reflection?
Or a day of interaction?
A day we taste spirits and hotdogs?
Or dine on tamales and fried rice?
Do we wave the flag of our country,
Or celebrate our kinship with all countries?
Is this a day of Independence?
Or a day of Interdependence?
Happy July 4th.
