Another July 4th rolls around and America celebrates its independence with barbecues and fireworks. While I glance at our world today and "smh" at what that independence has yielded, I turn my magnifying glass onto the subject of personal freedom.
A second round of the "Five from Fifty" exercise in Margaret Lobenstine's Renaissance Soul revealed personal freedom as one of my top five values. That should be no surprise considering my Sagittarius sun. But since it wasn't on my list the first time, I got to thinking about what freedom actually means to me.
