Editorial: Celebrate the history of the Fourth

(Continued)

Today, there are still inequalities to address in this country, whether gender, race, sexuality or poverty. There are still wars faced by Americans. There are also great freedoms to celebrate, defined every day by honorable men and women.

The Fourth of July is more than fireworks and barbecue; more than waving a sparkler to some vague notion of independence.

To truly celebrate this day, we can all refresh ourselves on our U.S. history lessons of the past. Then try to adapt the initial intent of our forefathers who sought an independent nation free of tyranny. Americans are still free. Celebrate the glorious history of this day and pray that it continues forever.

Yes, the future is bright.
No, the Colts would have won another Super Bowl by now if they had kept Manning.
Don't know; don't care
