Independence Day means so many different things to so many people. Some it means remembering all that was sacrificed by a loved one or sacrificed themselves. For some it’s just a day with family celebrating what this day means. For some it’s meditating on the idea of what this day gives. But unitedly this day means celebrating, remembering, and being grateful for the freedom in our country. The freedom that wasn’t given so simply, but that lives were laid down for and lives were drastically changed for. Freedom came with a cost, so that you and I today can enjoy our rights. Freedom is the reminder that we are delivered because of what people just like us fought for.
So this Fourth of July, celebrate your freedom and remember those who made this Independence possible. Let the fireworks and cook outs commence in honor of this day. Enjoy freedom and deliverance with all of your favorite people!
Here is a couple of responses from our employees on what freedom means to them:
“Living life abundantly through my self-will, by taking full advantage of the great opportunities given to me.” – Brandon
“Freedom means being able to live a life without fear. We have the ability to be who we want to be and to be successful once our passions become alive. We don’t have to become what others say and we can excel and soar to anything we set our minds to.” – Anita
I love that our employees all have different takes on freedom and the empowerment that they feel because of their freedom. It was inspiring to hear that some of our employees thought about the freedom of success and the freedom of pursuing who they want to be. That’s what freedom is it the power and right to act, speak, and think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. Isn’t it amazing that we live in a country where opportunities and success is achievable for anyone? That is why we celebrate and we honor this day because we are free!
We hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July from all of us at VoiceNation!
