@Cosmo had some incredible words about the 4th and what it means to him. We don’t live in a perfect country, but it’s still great, and we will continue to strive to make it great.

We are either getting better or getting worse at any given time. Complacency is the enemy.
Thank you for putting up with me during all my Q’s this week. As I type this I feel like I can barely walk. This holiday and this nation means a lot to me, and I wanted to share my passion with the PAX, especially during this difficult time. Now more than ever, we need to unify and continue work to make this country better for all…beginning in our homes and workplaces.
Happy 4th. TD out.
