I don't have anything very coherent to say about the Fourth of July and what it means and has meant to me any why it is different for me this year and not-different for some other people and what else I'm thinking of because of that. So I'll let some friends have their say instead.

Babbling...I need to remember that the founding of the United States was definitely NOT an unmixed good for many people, especially the Native American nations that were decimated or genocided as colonial settlement. And some people are NOT okay with fireworks. And if there is a point to this line of thought, it's that this year things are definitely not improving and that's not okay. And that it is still true that this holiday is and has been important to me, and that I do still feel something like love and loyalty for my incredibly deeply awful nation.

If there is work to be done, let it be work that heals the world--

If we are to celebrate at all, let us all be allowed to celebrate--

And if the world is f****d anyway, then at least, be kind--
