A single red fire engine lead the way with its flashing
lights, screaming sirens and deep horn blasts.
As I filmed the mini-parade of “little ones” on bikes, scooters and
tricycles behind this HUGE red fire truck, my eyes went misty.
You see, recently I became a “free man” in terms of my career.
So there is a whole new level of meaning to the word “Independence.”
Even if it is as simple as working on my own — in the drivers seat–
in the form of an entrepreneur.
I have much to be grateful for.
My appreciation for those who organized and fought
for our countries independence is much richer.
I also have a deep appreciation for the freedoms we share
as a great country having lived outside the US for a few years.
You never know how good you have it until you step foot outside
the borders and see how life is like in foreign soil.
So happy 4th of July to you, your friends and family.
Take time out to honor those who have gone before us
keeping those words in tact in the Declaration of Independence.
And to the ones currently in place to defend our freedom …
A big red, white and blue HORN BLAST to you! Thanks.
