I’m re-posting this from last Fourth of July with a few new additions.
This is the country I’m celebrating today, the future I’m fighting for, and the ideals I will always champion. We’ve been knocked down, but we will not be dragged backwards.
In my America, I believe:
Women’s Rights Are Human Rights
Black Lives Matter
Love is Love is Love is Love
Science is Real
No Human is Illegal
Protesting and Resisting are Patriotic
Diversity Should be Celebrated
Women are in Control of Their Own Bodies
Families Belong Together, Families Belong Free
Facts are Important and Words Matter
Healthcare is a Right Not a Privilege
Freedom of the Press and Voting Rights Should be Protected
Kindness is Everything, but Standing Up for the Marginalized is More Important Than Civility
