This weekend marks a special one for our country.
For 240 years, Americans have united and aligned around the enduring principles of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Even after almost two and half centuries, the Declaration of Independence endures. You can read this timeless document via the United States Archives here.
Recent events around the world, and tragically in our country, have never made these words ring truer.
The bedrock values of the United States are based on respect – respect of race, religion, opinion, thought and more.
MGM Resorts International embraces – we stand for – equality and inclusion. As we observed during the tragedy this month in Orlando, it was a reminder to practice humanity toward each other, each and every day.
Even more than 30 years ago in the book Megatrends, author John Naisbitt observed that our nation’s diversity and inclusion makes us stronger compared with other countries, similar to how the blending of two metals – the science of metallurgy – makes the combined alloy stronger than the sum of the original parts. At MGM Resorts International, we say we are united – and made stronger – through diversity and inclusion.
I hope you are able to find some time this weekend – while serving our many guests – to reflect on the brilliance, foresight and good heartedness of our nation’s Founders toward humankind.
Thank you for all of your support, and I hope you are able to have some summer fun!
