Lady Liberty standing proud

Given that the US Independence Day celebrates the eviction of the British from America, I daresay I could be accused of treason for wishing my followers in the US a happy 4th July.

However, I do admire the gusto with which they celebrate it and wish that England could be similarly patriotic. Unfortunately, patriotism here tends to be little more than very poorly disguised xenophobia and, when that happens, you end up with the clusterfuck that is Brexit.

That is a topic that I have no desire to get into right now though. I will instead pay homage to Lady Liberty. A powerful symbol of the ideals that we should all aspire to in order to create a better world for all. Sadly, something that is easier said than done. But we can all dream.

And, with that, I say happy 4th July to all! May it be free from alien invasions and all the unpleasantness that can come along with that.
