“The bravest things we do in our lives are usually known only to ourselves.”
– Peggy Noonan
You might not have thought about it, but Lady Liberty always stands by herself. The quest to be free, and to help others be free, is first and foremost an internal quest. When my mother was a child, she arrived in New York harbor on a boat, and she no doubt saw Lady Liberty standing there, all by herself. At that moment, I’m certain my mother felt less alone. Just as Lady Liberty does each day, so, too, can each of us do something – however small – to help someone be free: free from hunger, free to express his or herself, free to pray (or not to pray) in any way they want to, and to be free from fear. Go ahead, lift a torch to someone. Enjoy your freedom to do so.
That’s what our blog efforts are all about. On behalf of all of us at SkloverWorkingWisdom we wish you a happy and safe 4th of July.
