In this season leading to the presidential election, it’s inevitable the debates will get hotter and probably uglier as November draws nearer. There are so many issues dividing our country and our people, tolerance and cooperation often seem forgotten ideals of another era.

So this July 4th, let’s honor the spirit of the celebration—freedom to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all whether we agree with each other or not. Live and let live. Agree to disagree. Ours is a grand, diverse and beautiful country from sea to shining sea.

Have a happy, safe Independence Day!
