Let Freedom Ring!

Growing up near Philadelphia, steeped in the Declaration of Independence and all its magic, the Fourth of July holiday is one of my favorites.

I use this occasion to celebrate all the gifts that surround me and remember the intention of those who strove for a new way of seeing humanity. In freedom. Beyond tyranny.

Our founding fathers gave us principles. principles of freedom. The first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence shouts out the most basic of all truths.... "that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

These principles permeate every level of our existence.

On the back of our one dollar bill is the great seal of our country...



Two latin sayings adorn the seal, surrounding an all seeing eye.

Two universal statements offering a promise:

novus ordo seclorum = new order of the ages

annuit cœpto = eye of providence is looking at us with favor

Radical equality and foundational freedom. Take advantage of the meaning, the moment and the energy offered up. Today, and every day.

Living in an open source world with the deepest truth being we are all created equal.

In all that you do and all that you experience may you continue to be blessed.

Now. It wouldn't be the fourth of July for me without country music and there isn't a more gracious country artist than Martina Mcbride.

Enjoy her driving Independence Day performance and the songs chorus...

"Let freedom ring
Let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today is the day of a reckoning
Let the weak be strong
Let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away
Let the guilty pay
It's Independence Day"
