THE FOURTH OF JULY


Our national holiday in what may be a year of sweeping change. There is more hope for racial and economic justice, but it remains unfulfilled. The economy itself is battered by a disease that many of our leaders lack the courage or intelligence to control, while many of our people reject the medical science that can lead our way out of it. We have the opportunity but not the certainty of turning out of office a corrupt wannabe strongman who threatens our democracy. May July 4, 2021, be brighter.

I had exactly the same thoughts when I created my post for today. The celebratory mood has left the building. Love that photo!

Hopefully the celebratory atmosphere will return stronger next year.

My early July 4 memories are of fireworks at the athletic field on Big Bend at Washington U. I wonder if they have them any more in normal years — surely not today!

I guess many of us are feeling that the celebratory mood has left... I live here in Belgrade, but I always used to do something for the Fourth of July. But not this year...sad.

I agree with you.
