Hello, Wilson here, wishing you, on Mr. Struggan’s behalf, a very merry July 4th.
Mr. Struggan asked me to convey a special message to you all, in honor of this most honored of days on our nation’s calander:
A great man once said that the arc of history is long, but it bends towards justice; and while the character of this great nation has always been found in her ability to stand firm in the ideals she was built on, true progress on that arc, the journey we are all on as Americans, depends more on how much we are willing to bend the tides of time towards justice than it does on blind and stubborn commitment to a tired and broken status quo. Change is the only constant in life, and what defines America more than anything is her ability to rise up to the challenges we face when we open ourselves up to the inherent possibilities change presents us with.
So, on this July 4th, as you sit down with your hot dogs and (American) beers, Mr. Struggan asks that you take a moment to reflect on where you have been, where you are going, the changes you can make along the way, and the power to make them with which your country trusts you.
And if you can’t do it for Mr. Struggan, do it for George Washington.
Mr. Struggan sends his regards.
