I’m taking today off as part of our Independence Day holiday. Because the 4th falls on a Tuesday, many of us (me included) have a four day weekend. I’ve spent mine taking down wall paper and painting my bathroom.
This year on Independence Day I am reminded of the motto of my adopted state: Sic semper tyrannis (thus always to tyrants). I think most of us are aware of tyrants at the national and international levels – but tyrants can also be found at home, at our work, and in other places around our daily lives.
Independence is too precious to give up to anyone.
