America . . . the land of free and the home of the brave!
The 4th of July represents the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and America's independence from the U.K. As I think about what the day represents for citizens living in the United States, I can't help but think about all the individuals currently enslaved and what independence once meant and does mean to them!
As we celebrate with food, family, friends, fireworks, and freedom (the 5 F's), please think about those who are not celebrating the same way as you and I. While America is the land of the free for many people, it is not the land of the free for others. Take time today to research and educate yourself about human trafficking.
-We all deserve freedom!
