Day 119: Gratitude and Freedom

Day 119 of the Nowhere To Be Project fell on the Fourth of July. My day was fully engulfed in the usual revelry of the day. The town of Vail was teeming with people decked out in red, white and blue who seemed laser focused on celebrating. On this day in America we celebrate our independence as a sovereign nation.

There is no denying that a great divide currently exists in our country, but somehow that division seemed a bit less intense today and I am grateful for that. Freedom is one of those things that everyone wants, but most of us don’t spend nearly enough time honoring it and those who have sacrificed everything to give it to us. How lucky we are to live with freedom!
