9:45 AM I went about my walk this morning, and observed the golden, pink light spilling across the heavy, rain-laden clouds, I stopped to think about my personal freedoms:

• to walk unafraid in my neighborhood, alone • in clothing of my choice • to do work I love without fear • to think thoughts that may not agree with my neighbor's • and to express them without fear • free from a fear of hunger • free from a fear of violence • and this is just a beginning of the list that went on for over 45 minutes!

These freedoms are not free. I am ever grateful to the men and women who have won them for me.

Today, I pause to remember that this country, no matter its ills, is STILL a great country!

Happy 4th of July!
