The Cost of True Freedom

Reflections on American Independence Day

 

How can a people so diverse as Americans, live together in true freedom? It is so easy for us to be divided by so many factors: race, religion, philosophy, socio-economic status, national origins, and...well, you fill in the blank!

At the most basic level, though, we all breathe the same air. We all drink the same water. We all live on the same planet. And we all have dreams or hopes for ourselves and for our families....

Fourteen years ago, way way back in 1989, a man named Rob Reiner brought When Harry Met Sally to the silver screen.

Oooooohhh I just have to tell you, "THE BIG BOY IS BACK," and I'm not talking about my little Tubby Hubby, Wayne; although we have been doing something together that we haven't been doing in a while because of the colds, and having the gilly whumps, and the headaches, and I don't know what all else I've had this past winter.
