Declaring Our Independence

Sky Fire

In America, we celebrate the day that we declared independence. It symbolizes the birth of our nation, when we stood up to injustice and declared that we would fight to protect our inalienable rights as human beings. Yet since July Fourth, 1776 many Americans have fallen under the dictatorship of another kind. We are governed by things like our drive for success, our desire for elevated social status, our habits and addictions, and our need to be entertained. If we enslave ourselves to these things then can we really say that we are free?

What are the dictators in our lives that we should be declaring our independence from?
