Fourth of July, 2011

Happy Birthday USA! Now let us point out some of the most incredible ironies: how do we celebrate the birth of nation that meant the death of so many others and the imprionment and enslavement of entire ethnic groups of people from the Western Coast of the Continent of Africa, large swaths of Scotland and all of Ireland? Imagine, if you will, a nation facing its history of conquest and crimes, seeking reconciliation and seeking a present, not only a future, but a present, a nownow, that was inclusive and dismissive of the amazing variety of people that we call "Americans." Would that not be one nation under a groove?
