I know that title may evoke a lot of thought, at least I hope so. Yes, I agree that many are not truly independent on Independence Day. My thoughts go out to those who served in combat and those traumatized in life in situations that entailed loud explosions, bright flashes of light, sudden bursts that shatter the night. For many the louder the bangs, the louder the cheers and it all is part of the great American celebration of our Independence from Great Britain. I don’t want to take that away from anyone.
