If you live in the U.S. and you’re like me, you may be viewing tomorrow with some mixed feelings. We have a president who is showing more tendencies toward dictatorship by the hour. Civil rights are under attack, as is the press—both figuratively and literally after last week’s shooting at the Capital Gazette. And we seem to have lost sight of the fact that our country was founded by immigrants. Here’s the Trump Administration’s latest salvo at desperate parents attempting to apply for asylum.
To be honest, there are some days that I don’t even recognize this country anymore. But I haven’t given up hope. Not yet anyway. So tomorrow I’ll celebrate the birth of our nation like I do every year, but at the same time I’ll be praying for its future. I hope all of you have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!
