As a member of the US military and OEF veteran, I want to wish you all a happy Independence Day.
Let us not forget, as we enjoy our freedom, that not everyone has the same. There are still people around the world who are unable to worship (or not worship) as they see fit. Even here, in the land of the free, there are those who feel the need to hide who they are and what they believe.
So as you celebrate the nation’s independence, keep in mind those who are fighting for religious independence. Let’s end the stigma of being atheist. Happy 4th.
