Happy Independence Day!

Chris Johns & Terry Adamson of NGS clink glasses with our new partners in Beijing.

… that we should no longer expect to see stories
that are as provincial as this one:

NGM, February 1976

Problem is, if we stop telling this story —
to each other and to our children —
then it will die.

Which is why we firmly believe
it’s the Freedom story that makes us a society.

It’s also the story
that could make us a Society once again.

Happy Fourth of July!
