This evening after dinner with friends, fireworks lit up the sky. It was so lovely with the temperature perfect, the doors and windows open and the four of us just sitting there, chatting, watching with delight. A feeling of "independence".
"True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made."
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Nevertheless, I'm still happy to be an American!
