Op-Ed: America’s Independence on a Precipice, but Hope Remains
America’s July 4 observance in 2023 arrives with more skin color arguments, affirmative action disputes, global unrest, domestic debates, political battles and natural disasters.

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once insightfully declared, "We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now."
The United States of America, that grand old experiment still unfolds, and we remain as the front-row witnesses.
We see with our own eyes the tragedies, the bumps on the road of this life, as well as the triumphs; some of which are uniquely American stories of breathtaking victory over sometimes stunning defeats.
Our nation's position though, is indeed a precarious one.
However, we have "teetered" before, only to emerge so much more than victorious!
