Independence Day

On July 4th we unite in celebrating our greatest gift, freedom.

I am free to cross thousands of miles without borders. Personal safety from an enemy is not a primary concern. But am I really free?

I don’t always say what I think. I edit my words. I skimp on my truth, in the process often guessing, “what do others around me need or value more?”  I’m not alone in this. By holding words in, we don’t reveal what means the most. We do not allow our true self to be free.

On Independence Day, I’m wondering how my life might better honor the full use of this gift of freedom that many men and women honored today have earned for me.
