As we celebrate our country’s Independence Day, I reflect upon the meaning of freedom. Perhaps the one that best suits is the choice to make one’s own decisions. Living in The USA gives us so many opportunities to be free. (but we are not exempt from the consequences of those decisions) Yes, we have our own problems as a country; but, all one has to do is travel the world to see how fortunate we are to have so many freedoms.

In the words of Thomas Jefferson:

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Happy July Fourth🇺🇸💥
