let freedom ring

As my kids like to say, “it’s a free country.”

Usually this Declaration of Independence comes in the context of some you can’t make me retort involving Harry Potter play or Lego pieces.

And they are right, it is a free country. We are free to choose whom we love, where we live, our profession. We have the right to vote, speak our mind, control our bodies. We can redress our grievances to our government and hire redress grievance officers (i.e. lobbyists) to advocate for our views.

There is much that is screwed up in this beautiful country of ours, but with the good comes the bad.

Today I toast the good.
