I don't mean to be Debbie Downer. Sorry.
There's just more to the holiday than some seem to think. There's much to celebrate, as the country is, for the most part, better than it was even 50 years ago.
That's worth remembering, and celebrating. But temper that with remembering the cost.
I can be very depressing when I try.
