Arrogance comes from politicians, from highly educated, and the illiterate. It’s the “I’m better than you” attitude that knows no boundaries. Yet we see it all around us.
Apathy is usually an “I don’t care” attitude that really is prefaced with a “What’s In It For Me?” mindset and if the answer is not clearly relevant, we become apathetic.
The American Way means different things to everyone you ask. It might mean freedom to some, or free health care to others. It could stand for Independence from government interference, to government run business oversight to others.
I hope and pray that over the summer, Arrogance and Apathy do not become your version of the American Way. Enjoy the holiday and remember why we celebrate.
