On July 4th we will rejoice in celebration to commemorate our countries’ declaration of independence from Great Britian and King George III. 160 years later and the celebrations are still going strong, but I challenge you to take a moment today to reflect upon the reasons why we celebrate…. the freedom from oppression….. that all men are created equal and our unalienable rights; life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
On July 4, 2012….Are you free? No, really…think about it! In many ways we are still fighting…we may not be escaping oppression from another government, but we are still fighting…fighting for justice ( for Trayvon Martin), life ( the right to choose), liberty (freedom from the oppressors of life; a job rather than a career, overwhelming debit, sickness without access to quality health care) and the pursuit of happiness (existing yet never truly living life).
Today it’s all about the barbecue and the fireworks, but at some point when you manage to get a quiet moment….. reflect on the significance of the celebration and then ask yourself, ” Am I Free”?
