Celebrate Freedom

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism." Erma Bombeck

We live in a country with unlimited access to google, freedom to express our thoughts and to hangout with other creatives without fear of reprisal.

How often do we stop to appreciate the freedom to write?

Thanks, Roxanne. Sometimes I think we take our freedom to express ourselves for granted.
