How do You Celebrate Independence?

It’s Independence Day here in the United States, a holiday usually celebrated with fireworks & beer, family & friends, parades & barbecues. American flags waving, I keep expecting people to start a “USA! USA!” chant. I love getting together with great people on this day, but I’m never quite comfortable celebrating independence in a strongly pro-America way.

Instead, what if we worked on projects that helped us develop our personal independence? Our business plans, our investment strategies, healing old traumas, or whatever is holding us back from living the great life we dream about?

What if we supported the struggles of Burma for independence from military rule, or campaigned for our nation’s independence from oil?

What if we celebrated Interdependence Day, and honored our connections with each other and our world?
