Today the USA celebrates its Independence.
Is any country truly independent?
Is any group of people independent?
Is any person truly independent?
We are all interdependent.
All people, all animals, all plants, fungi, bacteria and even viruses.
Every living thing needs something outside of itself to survive and thrive.
In this time of derision and divisiveness,
I choose to celebrate my INTERDEPENDENCE.
I appreciate my oxygen from plants, my food from other living creatures
and my tiny little piece of land that I live on.
May the sun keep shining and the rain keep falling.
Happy July 4th!
