Celebrate an Idea.

My country hasn’t done much to make me proud lately. But on this Fourth of July, I want to celebrate America that is larger than the sum of its parts. I want to celebrate my America that is more than a country. I want to celebrate America that is a concept, a theory, an experiment.

It’s an America that has always been that — an idea — and hopefully always will be (even if somewhere in the cloud).
