Comment: Patriots' Day And American Spirit
It has been our custom for several years to write a comment devoted to Patriots' Day. Though a little late, we would like to reiterate the meaning of Patriots' Day. It is a celebration of the start of the American Revolution: the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Thomas Jefferson captured the new vision of America best "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal." This was a radical idea in a world torn by provincial and religious conflicts. Millions of immigrants continue coming to America leaving behind their homelands attracted by that idea. These folks have the characteristics they share with the original immigrants to this continent: of ambition, of risk taking, of willingness to work hard to build new lives - they renew and reinvigorate the American dream. In this sense, they are American in spirit though not yet in name. Many anti-immigrationists attempted to use the Boston attack on Patriots' Day to condemn millions of these innocent immigrants by association with the two terrorists. Doing so goes against all that America stands for, and those that do it may be Americans in name but they certainly are not Americans in spirit. Share your thoughts by writing to editor@ilw.com.
