Yours, Not Mine

Flattr this!

Scrolling and clicking around the social networks on the 4th of July, you see alot of well wishes and people in the US getting together to celebrate. As a kid there were some years, when I wasn’t in Portugal, that I would of course enjoy the festivities on this day.  However now as an adult, I know more about what this day means, and instead of celebrating, I return to the words of Frederick Douglass, “This Fourth of July is yours, not mine.”
