Independence Day: Celebrating the Freedom to Connect and Learn

As the U.S. prepares for our annual Fourth of July celebrations this coming weekend, this year takes on a different tone as we continue to endure the COVID-19 coronavirus crisis. There will be very few picnics, barbecues, and pool parties, although I have heard about some virtual fireworks events, as well as ones that can be viewed from your car.

It’s a reasonable aspect of the social contract to ask people to do their part to quell a pandemic. Especially here in America as cases are spiking in record numbers across multiple states, most people will comply with recommendations to stay home, if possible, and socially distance if they need to go out.

As a result, this year’s Independence Day will look very different than those in the past.
