Happy Birthday America

Scene: Maria, a proud and colorful American, sparkling her way up the street in red, white, and blue to celebrate Independence Day.
Independence Day by S. Ginsberg:
My country / Noble / Resilient / Troubled / Divided / Strong / Still a beacon of hope / In this uncertain world / Ever striving toward the “Dream” / Not of the white picket fence, / but of Equality / Generosity / Liberty / Compassion and / Justice / For All / “We hold these truths to be self-evident” / Happy Birthday, America!
