It is thrilling to celebrate your independence, but when you do, leave everyone else’s alone. I have always believed in the promise of America. I liked the idea of all people being equal and opportunity being unlimited. Throughout my life I have tried to take advantage of the opportunities to be independent and choose the road I want for myself. Independence is commonly defined as not being controlled or influenced by others in things regarding conduct and opinion, thinking and/or acting for one’s self. It is truly a wonderful thing to be able to control your own destiny, to be able to pick and choose what you will do, when you will do it and how you will get it done.
An interesting thing about the definition of independence is that it says nothing about bothering other people.
