It’s that time again, friends! Time for BBQ, fireworks, and celebrating this great country we live in..and hopefully some time at the beach! Nowadays, we understand that it may be hard for some to truly celebrate living here, especially with Fourth of July 2021 rapidly approaching. We have a lot of work to do to make it a great place for people of every gender, race, and sexual preference, but let’s take a moment to sit back and appreciate the positive parts of a very difficult year.
