Freedom. What does that mean to you? It seems simple – freedom is to be free. But free from what? Oppression is the simple answer, but as I pondered freedom my mind raced in many directions.
This week in the United States we celebrate freedom from the domination of Great Britian. Our forefathers gathered together, put their grievances on paper and declared the 13 colonies independent states. They put their signatures to the declaration, pledging to one another their lives, their fortunes and their honor in support of independence from England.
I invite you to ponder freedom with me. What does it mean to you to be free? What oppresses you? What grievances do you need to declare? Today is a great day to declare freedom!
