Top of Mind Thursday memo from leverage2market.com
 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness....

Saturday is Independence Day--the 244th anniversary of the day the Colonies declared their independence from England. 
 
We certainly have a lot to ponder this year. A global pandemic, tough economic conditions, police brutality, and ongoing racial inequality are significantly impacting our unalienable rights.
 
One of the most impressive parts of our 250-year experiment in democracy is the ability to take stock and self-correct to get back to our core founding principals. That means some of the most critical pieces of our Constitution, aren't in the Constitution at all--but in the Amendments that correct and amplify what was laid out in 1776. 
 
The events of the past few months have caused us to hit pause on our regularly scheduled lives. We have the opportunity now to revisit our prior assumptions--to move beyond masks and monuments, excessive force and paranoia about those who are different from us. 
 
This Fourth of July we have the opportunity to reflect on how we as a nation should define independence. We have the chance to move closer to what we adopted 244 years ago: 
 
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
 
To quote Hamilton, let's not throw away our shot.
