“This 4th of July we celebrate freedom and liberty—our most cherished of ideals. Yet today, some Americans do not possess the same freedoms.
Now more than ever we must redouble our efforts to equally fulfill those unalienable rights promised by our nation’s founders: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Today on the 4th of July I’m reminded of these words in the preamble of our constitution.
