A Turbulent United States This July 4th But Many See a Cause to Celebrate

From an AP story by Bobby Caina Calvan headlined “A turbulent US this July 4, but many see a cause to celebrate”:

Independence Day arrives at a time when the United States is roiled by hearings over the Jan. 6 insurrection, awash in turmoil over high court rulings on abortion and guns and struggling to maintain the common bonds that keep it together.

Yet many also see cause to celebrate: The pandemic continues to be on the wane and, despite its faults, America’s democracy survives.
