Civic Value: Vision


Independence Day will be different for so many of us this year. Our traditional celebrations will change and many will reflect more deeply on the challenges we face as a nation in fulfilling the aspirations and claims of the Declaration of Independence. Now more than ever, it’s important even as we enjoy family and friends that we remember why we have this holiday. Consider what July 4th means to our nation and to you.
