In 1776 our founders set forth with a bold experiment - that government existed to serve the people, and not the reverse.
There were some things that could have been better then. There have been mistakes along the way. We have drifted in many ways from that initial vision, sadly.
But, consider the fact that to this day we are blessed enough to live in a nation that people will literally risk death to enter. Despite the challenges we face, we have freedoms and abundance which are unequaled in history.
May we strive to remember this, and to find our unity once again.
