While we celebrate our heritage and our proud history, let us not forget that America's values which were expressed 244 years ago and continues to guide this "great experiment in government".  On this profile page we have long opined on the importance of innovation as a critical tool for socio-economic progress.  We stand in absolute support of what has been the ultimate innovation.....

...in civic engagement.  Our history is not perfect, nor are the conditions we face today.  But the progress has been stunning.  And continue to this very day.

Without fully understanding the lessons of history and our collective experience, we are doomed to repeat them.  Worse yet, the lessons of experience become lost and the gains with them.

So, happy Fourth of July to all people and remember the importance of freedom to bo beyond one's circumstances and help yourself, those you care for, and even those you have never met live better lives.  But let us never forget that in living one's better life, we must never trample of the aspirations and freedoms and rights of others.
