Although we have a heinous, unfit president in office, it is still important to recognize the freedom that many of us have in the USA. People immigrate here from all over the world to share that freedom, and I can only hope that we continue to welcome these humans with open arms. On July 4th 2017, many people gathered in solidarity to share their anger with the current political state or celebrate our freedom in Columbus's lefty, punk-rock Doo Dah Parade. I marched with the impromptu Doo Dah Drum Corps (which I have been referring to as the Drunk Corps) to celebrate this holiday. July 3rd was a special night as well with fireworks, flat tires, doubling up on a bike with a six pack of beer, bottle rockets, anticlimactic sparklers, and an undertone of romance.
