It’s Independence Day here in the USA and while for many that usually means setting off fireworks (not my cup of tea) and totally pigging out on every BBQ and picnic goodie within reach (yummers), for me I like to take a moment and give thanks to the idea that I am my own, individually independent person, one who thinks, feels, emotes, and lives in my own way. I have the freedom of my own soul and nobody can take my inner most thoughts and feelings away from me. Even in a “free” country like America it can be a difficult thing to seek out and own that kind of person freedom. It does take courage to take a stand and think and do for yourself, aloud. I admire those who have paved, and who are still paving, the way to true, universal freedom. Be you. Be true. And do both aloud. It is worth it.
