What does Independence Day Mean to You?

For me Independence Day means freedom from any person or entity that seeks to mentally, physically, socially/emotionally or spiritually lock me into bondage/oppression. 

 According to Wikipedia, Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is the national day of the United States…

 However, Frederick Douglass made an interesting and powerful speech about Independence Day back in 1841. Check out this link of what Independence Day meant to him.  http://www.libertynet.org/edcivic/freddoug.html

 Share your thoughts of what Independence Day means to you.

Peace & Love,
