Brave and free

If you've been reading my blog for a while perhaps you've picked up on how much I appreciate the brave men and woman who fight for our freedom, today I have a little something different on my mind. Please bear with me as I share what has been quite heavy on my mind and heart these past few weeks. Here is last years 4th of July post if your interested <3

What is independence? Is it having the choice to do what you will, or perhaps its the feeling you get when you complete something without the help of anyone. For many people this might be true, and for others it might not. Independence might even mean having the will to wake up in the morning and live another day.

The land of the free and the home of the brave, these words mean much more than meets the eye. When I hear that little phrase I take a minute to think of all those who aren't yet brave and free. How about all the others here in America who don't feel this applies to them, what can we do to make others feel brave and free?

How about putting a stop to abuse, violence, being judgmental and bullying. The list could go on forever, but my point is that we being Americans must display and portray courage and freedom by being an example to the rest. Shine your light on this wonderful day by being brave and free and by helping those who haven't yet experienced the same!!!

xoxo, Gracie

  1. Well said, Gracie! Here in America we have opportunities that many people don't, like freedom and equality (at least for the most part). But there's still a lot to be fixed, and we need to constantly work towards changing things for the better. :)

    Once again, great post - and I hope you had a wonderful Independence Day!
