Our freedoms make life worth living.
July 2, 2014
PRAY. OR DON’T.
Dissent. Or don’t.
Tell off a politician. Or don’t.
Vote. Or don’t.
Go to church. Or don’t.
Read the Bible. Or the Koran. Or neither.
Be a Republican. Or a Democrat. Or neither.
Live in the city. Or out in the wide open spaces.
Dress up. Or dress down.
Drive a gasoline powered vehicle. Or an electric one.
Exercise. Or lie on the couch.
Be a coach. Or a cowboy.
Appreciate the Constitution. Or ignore it.
Choices –- countless, cherished choices –- are ours.
Freedom, independence make it so, as we are reminded on this July 4th.
Heck of a deal, no?
