Yesterday, Canada joined Ghana, Rwanda, Somalia and Burundi by celebrating their country's Independence Day. This Friday, America will celebrate hers, followed by Venezuela on Saturday and Malawi on Sunday.
Although each country has its own tradition for celebrating independence, it's refreshing to think that a simple dance can move all cultures. Matt's dancing movie is a peaceful reflection to the amiable qualities of human nature. No matter the language, financial or religious background, each person is unified through a simple dance. The walls of unfamiliarity and difference are removed and the basic bridge of human connection is constructed.
DANCE! Now, that's a way to celebrate any Independence Day.
