Happy Fourth of July — from Barcelona

Happy Fourth of July — from Barcelona

Hi there,

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July — and hopefully you'll be spending it with family and friends,  away from your smartphone or computer!

So I wanted to send a quick email this morning, before you go "off the grid", to wish you and your family well. All of us here at Cornet Barcelona send our compliments, and we hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July.

And, if you don't mind, I'd also like to share a quote with you.

These words belong to Condoleezza Rice, but I think anyone can appreciate them, regardless of their political leaning, especially in these divided times.

She said:

"The essence of America — that which really unites us — is not ethnicity, or nationality, or religion. It is an idea — and what an idea it is:

That you can come from humble circumstances and do great things. That it doesn't matter where you came from, but where you are going."

God bless the United States of America!
