Our country is not the only thing to which we owe our allegiance. It is also owed to justice and to humanity. Patriotism consists not of waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
We must not be free because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.
On this Independence Day, let us take time to reflect on how we can make the American dream a reality for everyone. We wish you a safe and happy holiday with loved ones.
