A forum for Princeton residents to express opinions about local and national issues
Question of the Week: "What does Independence Day mean to you?"
"It is meaningful to be here in Princeton since The Battle of Princeton saved the American Revolution, and without it the war would have been lost."
John Timoney, Leabrook Lane
"It means spending time with family and friends, and eating red white and blue food."
Jennifer Ross, Linden Lane
"It is when people celebrate our independence, and that we have freedoms that exceed other countries it's just a nice celebration."
Gill Sensigs, Moore Street
"As a naturalized citizen, Independence Day means total freedom for me. Most Americans associate freedom with religion, speech and political freedoms. As a person who comes from another country, I feel that America has to offer freedom from convention, social freedom, freedom for minorities ‹ it is really a country where you can be yourself and no one is going to judge you."
Sima Greenblat, Moore Street
