What does 4th July mean to average Palo Altan
Original post made by Non citizen, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on Jul 4, 2007
In an area like Palo Alto where we have so many non American born, where the most celebratory thing to do is a chili cook off in Mitchell Park, what are we really celebrating? It seems odd to say the country's birth date, it also seems odd to say freedom from the British. So, in the 21st century, is it just a day off or is there more to celebrate?
