Our freedoms make life worth living.



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?
