To understand the significance of America's Independence Day, it's helpful to think about what makes this country so special. What makes it truly unique is that it's a place where people from all over the world can come together and live. America is also a land of opportunity: no matter who you are or where you're from, if you work hard enough and believe in yourself, there will be nothing stopping you from achieving your dreams. The United States has been built on countless generations of immigrants who sought freedom—and that tradition continues today as new people arrive seeking safety or better opportunities than they could find elsewhere in the world.
American culture reflects this history; we are not simply "American," we are citizens of a diverse nation, working together towards equality for all people regardless of race/ethnicity/gender identity/sexual orientation/disability status/socio-economic status. Happy Fourth of July, let the fireworks begin.
