On a serious note, I hope you all stop for a moment a think about what freedom means to you - and what we've had to overcome in order to have those rights. Freedom of speech and expression is always a favorite for book lovers and a large amount of the population. I have to admit that it's sort of fitting that the celebration of our freedom is coming right after the monumental decision that happened last Friday, June 26, when the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage across the country. It was one of those days that will go down in history as a huge step towards equality among everyone.
So this 4th of July, I will be celebrating our rights as American citizens, thanking veterans and praying for those in the military still fighting to keep us safe and free, along with celebrating the freedom that everybody deserves - life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Although our society still has a long road ahead and lots of obstacles to overcome, we are fighting hard to make sure that the freedom and rights of ALL people are honored and upheld.
