Anthony, thank you for posting such a brave and wonderful post on this Independence Day. If I could have given you a hundred claps, I would. Too often the good part of our history and contributions are being ignored, and the dismal history of oppression throughout the ages seems to go unnoticed. As a history buff, I see our country as a unique island of freedom in the midst of a world that has been plagued by misery. Are we perfect? No. Are we flawed? Yes. But point to another country that has contributed so much to the liberty of humankind.
