We say a happy 244th birthday to our independence, but the document that helped forge our nation is going through some definitive changes in the midst of the nationwide racial conversation. Arlington is no different.

In this edition of ACMi News we recount recent passionate pleas for change in our society as we have reached a tipping point. But it’s a sure fire chance to confront and correct our racial differences that may require understanding a history full of failures and astounding triumphs, both individually and as a society.

And on this day of independence, we can celebrate our accomplishments and a willingness to change so that we can reach the point where all lives really matter.
