Today, after you reread the Declaration, read Frederick Douglass’ searing 5th of July speech. https://t.co/WGolUEV5Sxvia @slate (http://twitter.com/dweinberger/status/882202869826498560?s=17)

A holiday that becomes an assault-
Fireworks aren’t cause for celebration for veterans and gun violence survivors

#TheresePatriciaOkoumou, who immigrated to the US from Congo, climbed the base of the Statue of Liberty on the 4th of July to protest children being detained at the border. (The last image is for perspective on just how high she climbed) #HappyFourth https://t.co/L6K15E28bA (http://twitter.com/girlsreallyrule/status/1014824959099789319?s=17)

Therese Patricia Okoumou…an immigrant, putting her body on the line for other immigrants, literally grasping the hem of Lady Liberty’s garment on the 4th of July. This will be iconic. #TheresePatriciaOkoumou https://t.co/40SmHRTYuy (http://twitter.com/tomintheburgh/status/1014688740206415872?s=17)
