I would like to wish all the folks in the United States of America, and all of my American LJ friends a very Happy Independence Day this Fourth of July.
The United States is a mess at the moment, with a President who-- well, we'll not go into any of that here on this day. This day is about enjoying life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and I hope that each of you is doing so today, and every day, in your own way and with your own passion.
I would say to enjoy the fireworks and other 4th of July celebrations, but let's be honest... In this time of the coronavirus, folks should be keeping their physical distance, there should be no gatherings of people, and people should be wearing masks to prevent the spread of the disease. And remember, alcohol and fireworks (if you're doing them in your backyard) don't mix. Be safe, be healthy, and be happy. :)
