Red white & blue, for one, for all

To live in this country—with its many ethnicities, cultures, religions, and abilities—and say "I am an American" has hardly become simpler to do in 231 years. I think we have achieved the most, both individually and collectively, when patriotism is paired with the conviction that we can rise above flawed leadership, look out for one another, and follow paths to many kinds of success, all without the imposition of rigid conformity.

That's a lot to heap onto just one graphic design, so I distilled it down to awareness and our flag's colors. Like all of my awareness ribbons, there is a strength in the simplicity of Red White & Blue and energy in its curves that some ribbons lack. All in all, this design is a fine way to make any day an Independence Day.
