America is a strange country. In one sense, we are the freest country in the world. We have a ridiculous amount of freedom to do, say, and believe what the hell we want. Most of us do anyways. BUT, in another sense, there are groups of people who (rightfully so) feel as though they have never truly been free, they have been held back from freedom in all senses, and that is the truth. Only in America can these two things be true and evident. In the Declaration it says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident” and these things are truly evident in America. The best and the worst parts of this country collide in the pursuit of life, liberty (freedom), and the pursuit of being happy with an undercurrent of racism, sexism, ageism, and other isms floating around one big pot that never stops boiling.
