God bless America

If you’re an American, I hope you were able to express your freedom on Independence Day as well as these guys did:

When I think about how this sort of thing – for people who look very different from the majority to go out into an open field, in front of a stadium full of people, and sing and not have to worry about their safety – would have been impossible throughout most of human history, I realize just how fortunate we are to be free.

And when I think about in how much of the world this sort of thing still is NOT possible, I realize how much work we have yet to do.
