FOR ONE DAYÖÖÖÖÖ
Eric Glazer, Esq.
Published July 4, 2022
For the past 364 days we have all been labeled at one time
or another as either Democrat, Republican, Independent,
Conservative, Pro Choice, Pro Life, Straight, Gay, LGBTQ,
pro police, anti-police, pro open borders, anti open
borders, For Black Lives Matter, Against Black Lives Matter,
pro Trump, anti Trump, pro Biden, anti Biden, for the death
penalty, against the death penalty, pro 2nd
amendment, pro gun control and the list goes on and on. We
donít need to worry about Russia or China beating us, we are
killing ourselves from within. With every new category we
create, we are dividing ourselves from each other further
Weíre at each otherís throats on every issue instead of
calmly having sensible discussion like adults should. 24/7
365 days a year, round the clock news may be the worst thing
that ever happened to this country. When we were kids or
even young adults, the news would come on at 6:00 pm for an
hour and 11:00 pm, for a half hour. Then came Johnny
Carson. Thatís it. Nothing was sensationalized. Nothing
was opinionated. The actual facts were presented and you
were left to make your own decisions. Now, stations need to
fill up 24 hours of around the clock news instead of one
hour. How do you do that without blowing everything, every
issue way out of proportion? You canít. So you
sensationalize everything and get people to argue with each
other and sometimes hate each other and at our worst, we
have even lost personal friendships along the way.
So here we areÖJuly 4th, 2022. Itís our nationís
246th birthday. Today, we celebrate the birth of
the greatest country the world has ever seen. We provided
sanctuary for more immigrants, cured more illnesses, allowed
more religious and economic freedom than any other country
ever. We landed a man on the moon, created the automobile
and the telephone, saved the world from the Nazis and
tyranny and continue to be the shining beacon on the hill.
Itís why, despite the fact that we are not perfect, people
from every country all over the world want to come here,
because they know that in America if you work hard you can
become anything you want to be.
So today, letís just celebrate our birthday. Letís just
celebrate the fact that basically a bunch of farmers beat
the worldís greatest military giving us our own precious
country to run as we see fit. I think all in all America
has done an incredible job. Letís not forget that and more
importantly, letís not destroy it. So today, letís forget
all the categories they now lump us into. For one day,
letís just call ourselves Americans.
