The Gift of Independance & Freedom for All

Standard

Today is the 4th of July, but that’s simple the date on the calendar. What’s it all about?

It’s the day that the Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free, and independent states. Today we celebrate “Independence Day.”

I think to myself how blessed I am to be born an American. I am able to live and practice the gift of freedom that comes from above all, our Creator. With this gift comes a great responsibility. While I am as independent as each state is, what I choose to do, think, and say, affects the better good or bad of all. There is voice I hear inside when something doesn’t feel right, it says, “something’s happening here, and what it is ain’t exactly clear.” It’s the voice of warning that calls for each one of us to make a choice; will you simple do what you please or do what is right?

For in the end It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more then our personal desires.
