Allow us a moment, Tumblr:

Beyond anything else today is about, it’s about taking a second to remember that America is amazing. Really: It’s amazing. Disappointments, BS, and irony aside, this is the longest experiment in DIY, make-it-up-as-you-go country-running in recorded history, and it’s ours to make what we will of it. In one of the foremost countries on earth, we are the ones calling the shots, and sometimes we disappoint the hell out of each other but from time to time we surprise ourselves with greatness.

What’s crazier than that? What’s more amazing?

Do this now: Register to vote. Then tell your friends to register to vote. Make it the last thing you do tonight to celebrate the Fourth. Happy Independence Day.

About Me

I'm @jihiitea.

Curious about news literacy, networked communication, journalism ethics, news design, storytelling, spirituality, and how they all connect. Here is where I meander through the internet.

Most of my blogging about media is over at the Future Journalism Project. Work & Projects are here.
