Happy Fourth of July/Thanksgiving

Happy Fourth of July! For me, this year more than ever, the Fourth of July feels like Thanksgiving as I reflect on how grateful I am to live here.

When I hear of the struggles of motivated undocumented students, it breaks my heart and reminds me that citizenship in this country is such a privilege - one those of us born into it rarely appreciate. 

Despite our many problems, today I am so unbelievably thankful to live in a place with free K-12 education, a constitution we can return to in order to strive for true equality, and a country that believes in creativity. 

I realize now more than ever that it is an incredible gift, and the best way to appreciate it, is to share it. I hope we can continue to share our gifts so that others can be given the opportunity to share their gifts with us. 

Happy Fourth of July! I hope you have an incredible day and sparkly, grateful night.
