It’s OK to criticize, but do it with kindness

Scanning through social media after the Glencoe Days celebration was somewhat deflating, to say the least.
People took to the Internet to offer up their criticisms of the celebration. Every public event is subject to criticism, but what struck us most was the venom of some of the barbed comments. The other thing that struck us was that some people simply have no idea how a community festival or celebration is organized.

The history of Independence Day
