Where does freedom really come from?

Today we celebrate our independence as a nation here in the United States. At the same time, so many of its citizens do not feel entirely free. Many people in this “land of the free” are persecuted and discriminated against for many reasons – skin color, gender, financial status, education level, sexual orientation, past mistakes, and more. We’re free, but not really free? That’s a misunderstanding for sure. So, where does freedom really come from? In order to clear up the misunderstanding on the outside, we have to start with clearing up the misunderstanding on the inside. We’re free not because of what people say or determine for us. And, neither do our physical circumstances determine our freedom. Our freedom comes from within.

Love & blessings,
