Happy Fourth, my friends! This year’s Independence Day seems to carry more weight, largely because it’s an election year (make sure you vote! It’s important), but also because I’ve spent the last eight months being captivated by Hamilton, the Musical and, in turn, the stories of the people who founded the United States. I’m still reading the Chernow biography of Hamilton and am frequently amazed at the parallels between what we see today in politics and leadership and what was happening at the birth of our country.
Have a safe and happy celebration, wherever you are.
