Independence means not having to depend upon anyone or anything else other than yourself. Can we truly be independent by that definition? Our country gained its independence over 200 years ago and since then we have been oh so dependent!
We have been dependent upon a creator who cares for us and without whom we would have been and will be clearly lost.
We have been dependent upon other peoples in the world that share our hopes and dreams and have participated in celebrating and protecting those hopes and dreams for our as long as we have been free.
We have been dependent upon our fellow countrymen and countrywomen to reciprocally demonstrate love, understanding and caring for the welfare of each of us.
And, we have been dependent upon our self, not to always put self first; but to consider those in spiritual, emotional, physical and financial need.
Let’s celebrate our Independence by celebrating our dependency! Have a wonderful Fourth of July!
