Happy Fourth

“I’m the one who dreamt our basic dream in the Old World, while still a serf of kings… who dreamt a dream so strong, so brave, so true that even yet its mighty daring sings. In every brick and stone, in every furrow turned, that’s made America the land it has become… O, I’m the man who sailed those early seas in search of what I meant to be my home.”

-Langston Hughes, Let America Be America Again
