July 4th, our Independence Day here in America, will be acknowledged in a very different way this year. While decorations of red, white and blue blow in the breeze, there will be a quietness due to the state of our country. COVID-19 virus cases are spiking after months of our country basically shutting down commerce, schools and other parts of our lives. And now rioters/protestors destroy precious historical items and deface our country’s communities and reputation.
