We are closing in on July 4th. Already? Yes, already. Some of you probably have conflicted emotions about what it means to be patriotic under this president. I know I do. So when I created this year’s July 4th printables collection, a few funny things happened.
First of all, I started to feel protective over this country, and not just in the “it’s July 4th so I need to watch Independence Day on cable” kind of way. (Although I’ll totally do that because it’s downright un-American not to.)
Second, I noticed that my printables were split. Half patriotic, half protest.
Kinda like this great nation of ours.
But, in a way, isn’t that what America is? A bunch of voices, all talking at once. We would fight tooth and nail rather than bite our tongues for a moment. God forbid we venture to empathize with one another.
It’s kind of beautiful, that willful defiance of ours.
It’s kind of ugly, that willful defiance of ours.
I don’t have a solution to our great divide. I wish I did.
Regardless of our problems, I hope you see yourself a little in these July 4th printables. Protesting is the ultimate form of patriotism. It means you care enough about your country to want better.
