Happy Independence Day, all.
If you haven’t yet, see the movie – Testament of Youth – which I happened upon capriciously. It is a movie about World War I, set in England in the early part of the 1900’s. It is decidedly about war, but also about relationships, love, and consequences.
Taking a stand – isn’t that what we all must do, regarding independence, regarding relationships, in order not to stagnate in yesterday’s world?
It is a hard movie to watch, but worth it.
I reread the Declaration of Independence this morning. It is not a long document, but so well crafted and powerful, that I recommend it as a reminder, to anyone who looking to live their lives on course and consciously. Independence is hard fought and won, not acquiesced and given.
Enjoy the holiday, but remember what it is about as well.
