SQUARES – PERSPECTIVE – 4TH OF JULY

Today is July 4, 2020. A day that we celebrate the Independence of the United States of America.

I began soul searching for what our country could be. We are the United States of America, not the Divided States of America. Liberty and Justice for all…not just a few!
