Independence Day!!!

Tomorrow is not a day to celebrate the birth of a nation.
Tomorrow is not a day to celebrate our independence.

Tomorrow is a day to celebrate your independence.

Independence is a solitary thing.  It is not about the group or others or family.

Celebrate it.  Celebrate your self.

There is a day to be a proud Irishman or lass.
There is a day to be proud to be Mexican.
There is a day to be proud of your Puerto Rican roots.
There is a day to be proud that The United States was born.

Tomorrow is not the birthday of The United States.

Tomorrow is the celebration of the day the nation was conceived, not when it was born.

Tomorrow is the celebration of shaking off the yoke of otherness.

Be proud!

Be gay!  Be straight!
Be a jerk!  Be a sweetheart!
Be a lover!  Be a fighter!

Be YOU!

Be INDEPENDENT!

I am far more proud to stand tall than to say I belong to ANY nation.

That is the passion that conceived a nation.

Think of that with every rocket that bursts in the sky.

Spread the word!
