For many, they go into this July 4th bitter and upset because of the current political landscape.
Just remember, in the 1700's, 1800's and 1900's...men and women fought and died for the luxury you enjoy today.
Much going on in the political world (for the most part) doesn't change your day-to-day life. Don't let it define your life. You do that.
When the time comes, you can change the rest.
