Fourth of July Blends Reverence for the Past, Hope for the Future
The Fourth of July is a time to reflect on how far we have come as a nation since declaring our independence in 1776. But it is just as important to think about how much farther we must go to fully realize the ideals our nation was founded on.
I think we can all agree that this year has brought its share of unprecedented challenges, along with new opportunities to create a better world for future generations.
Even though the COVID-19 crisis has created many hardships, I have seen the people of Clarksdale respond with care, compassion and perseverance. We are learning from this experience and will be stronger because of it.
We have much to be proud of as Americans and much to look forward to in our efforts to build “a more perfect union.” As we prepare to celebrate our nation’s 244th birthday, we at Clarksdale Public Utilities wish all of our customers a safe and happy Fourth of July.
