Unlike last year, this Independence Day we will be with friends and families at barbeques, parades, and fireworks.
But for me, this occasion feels surreal. On Thursday, the House voted to form a committee to investigate the January 6th Capitol attack, an event that still leaves deep scars on our nation’s soul. I won’t forget that day, the day my country let me down.
This July 4th we celebrate our freedom, yet much of our freedom feels fragile and desperately needs protecting. That is exactly what I have been working for at JAC for the past four years.
