This Fourth of July KCLU brings you a special program that explores why red, white and blue are the most common combination on flags around the world (it's not just the U.S.).

Plus U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth lost both of her legs when the Army helicopter she was piloting got shot down in Iraq. To understand why she chose to serve, you need to understand a bit about her upbringing.

And... what does it means to be a true patriot? Legal scholar Jared Goldstein says the U.S. Constitution is like a magic mirror: we gaze into it and see ourselves, our dreams for the nation reflected back.

That's all in Top of Mind with Julie Rose airing Monday, July 4th at 7 p.m.
