Every year we celebrate Constitution Day. Celebrate not being ruled by Sweden or Denmark or some other former oppressor, celebrate our independence. How we belong to our country and our fellow countrymen, how we are a unity.
Like all good family celebrations, intentions and expectations come in different flavours. Some show up because their parents want them to, or their new girlfriend, some because they always have. Some come just for the party and some attend with their kids—some even turning their camera at the spectators in an attempt to see what it is they don’t quite belong to.
