Benghazi. "I'm going to build a wall." E-mail servers. "I love women." Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Brexit.
For one day, my social feed is thankfully devoid of the above and is instead populated with photos and posts from friends and family at lakes, in the mountains, on vacation or at home, surrounded by the trappings of this holiday where we celebrate our country's independence. Ribs, hot dogs, beer, grills, campfires, fireworks, swim suits, road trips, red/white/blue - it's all there.
Thank you for taking the day off, America - we're a better place when we come together to celebrate our union versus showcasing our dis-union.
Happy Independence Day 2016!
