Some know Independence Day only as a movie title. Others only know that it is the day that we have fireworks and listen to patriotic music. Others live in places where they know no freedoms. In the US, 241 years ago, the Declaration of Independence was adopted. It marked true independence from the previous oppressors. It changed things. It created a new nation. A free nation.
Yesterday I spent the day with my daughter, who attends university in Warsaw, Poland and just got home from her first year of studies this past Saturday. We talked a lot about freedom and liberty.
This blog is not about politics, but it is about loving our country and appreciating the power of independence and freedom and the power of choice.
Fireworks are a reminder to us of the amazing power that we have been given. They are majestic and awesome. Independence is a gift. Men fought hard for it and still do today. Tonight as you watch these present day “bombs bursting in air”, be grateful for the gift. Take stock in the freedoms that we enjoy.
Build a company. Make your vision a reality. Take charge of your future. Change your game. Be grateful for freedom. Love this land. Defend her.
