We’ve shed a lot of blood to be a free nation. It took vision, conflict, faith that there could be a better way, and guts. Was it worth it to become 13 independent colonies years ago? I think all Americans would say absolutely. Was it worth it to become 3 colonies known as Canada years ago on July 1? I think all Canadians would say absolutely too. And today, we still challenge each other everyday with different ideas, religions, legal interpretations, morals. We are a work in progress.
