NCW — Independence Day means eating red, white, and blue turbo rocket Popsicles in the backyard with your brother. It’s your grandma’s faded American flag T-shirt, watching your father light fireworks while wearing a mosquito net. Like us, local towns have their own traditions. They embrace diversity in celebration of the same idea. While we feast on stacks of pancakes that rival Lincoln’s top hat or enjoy fireworks, let’s remember that the struggle for the freedoms we enjoy today was not like the pretty bursts of sound and color we’ll see in the sky.
