In honor of our nation's 233rd birthday, Secretary Clinton delivered a video message for U.S. Embassies worldwide to play at their Fourth of July celebrations. Secretary Clinton said:
"For Americans, the Fourth of July is a day to reconnect with loved ones, to remember our history, and to renew our commitment to democracy, tolerance, and justice. As President Obama said in Cairo last month, these are not just American values, these are core principles we share with people everywhere."How can the U.S. effectively support democratic efforts in the world today?
