Celebrating the Fourth.

On the first anniversary of the September 11 attacks, 5000 people dressed in red white and blue to create the Stars and Stripes on a beach in Queensland.

Australians and Americans have been reminded since that day of how much we share. A belief in freedom. Respect for the individual. The state as a servant to the citizen and not the other way round. Those are tough ideals to uphold and preserve. We’re not always successful. Beside the nations that haven’t inherited our traditions of democracy and liberty, however, we’re doing pretty well.
Happy Fourth of July, USA!
