Getting on a flight again tonight, just four days after I landed. Just enough time to feel comfortable, and unsettled again to be leaving. It’s easy to feel grateful while at home, to be surrounded by love, opportunity, people who inspire me — and easy to ignore that not everyone in America has the America that I love.
Happy birthday, America. I hope that we grow wiser in our years, and not more jaded. Here’s to the red, white, and blue that stand for the country I just left and the country I’m headed to, and for the blood and the sky and the bright, bright sun.
