A July 4th reminder of the values of freedom

It’s the 4th of July and I’m celebrating Independence Day. Why? The reason is in the name.

I think we should take Independence Day as a reminder of not only America’s fight for its independence during the Revolution, but also as a reminder of the values of freedom, selfhood, independence, autonomy and such, and our daily struggle to fight for them.

It it’s heart, today is about independence, your independence. And its glorification.
