This is how we do free speech.

Kudos to Katherine for taking this poignant photo at the DFW International Airport. The young girl’s parents came here from Pakistan ten years ago.

These United States, along with other free and open countries, take a special pride in our freedom to speak out. We know it is not a perfect freedom, and we have been debating ‘how free is free’ for 240 years. For now, anyway, as we begin with a new president, new rules on immigration and new concerns, we are still free to protest.

I am proud of my country, just as you are proud of yours. And my fervent hope is that we can live together in peace.

Please let us know what you think about what we see.
