10 States Where Pride for Country Reigns SupremeNewser — Jenn Gidman
With the Fourth of July fast approaching, Americans are aware that the holiday will seem more low-key this year. Despite state reopenings, large celebrations are mostly still canceled to stop the spread of COVID-19, and as WalletHub notes, it may feel especially hard to muster up flag-waving spirit with renewed calls to attention on police brutality and racial inequities.
