Independence Day


On July 4th, I view fireworks with the two most important people in the world to me.

Today, Americans unite in celebrating our greatest gift, freedom.  In this country, 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 do not always say what I think. Sometimes I edit my words, skimping on my truth, guessing, “What do others need or value more, which I may give them?”   By holding in, we don’t reveal what means the most. We do not allow our true self freedom.

On Independence Day,  I consider how I may better embrace all aspects of the freedom those who are honored today earned for me.
