Communication Is Key In Any Relationship
Austin Bennett

Communicating is a vital part of any relationship. Whether it be a professional relationship for work, a friendship, or a romantic one, communication with one another is incredibly important. Without it, the relationship would fail. The line of communication is a two-way road, both people need to talk as well as sit back and listen. The listening part is what a lot of people struggle with.

You need to set aside your pride and have a conversation. No one likes to talk about really serious stuff, especially when it's addressing something personal like the way you drive or how you treat others. But these conversations are critical to building a strong and solid relationship.

Far too often do we sit back with our mouths closed. If something is wrong, speak up about it. Problems don't just go away; they simply just get pushed to the side and fester until one small little thing triggers it all. To avoid fights, calmly talk things out.

Opinions are okay to have, but to give an opinion requires you to be receptive of another's. I personally need to practice what I preach at times and be more open to what's out there. Everyone has their opinions and opinions need to be shared. They open your eyes, give you different ways of thinking, and can even alter your life.

The point is, every single human interaction requires good communication. Having an open and honest relationship could be the very thing that keeps it together. With open communication, you build trust and comfortability. Speak your mind, but do so in a calm and mature manner.

Now go out and start talking. You'll be surprised how many things can be solved once we just start talking about them.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
