Independent Thinking…Independence Day!

I am looking forward to our soon coming Independence Day Celebration Fourth of July.I have always loved the sounds and sights of this unique celebration. The day we as Americans together remember that our freedom came with a price. Men of independent thinking who willing placed it all on the line to win our nations freedom to self govern. I find myself this week being surrounded by the idea of independent thinking as I am reading Bill O’Reilly”s ‘Bold Fresh’ and this evening as I write I am watching the biography of General David Petraeus.

Not only am I a patriotic lover of my country I also come from a faith that was begun by an independant thinker named Abram whose name was later changed to Abraham because of his ability to think and question, changed by the unique God he followed. There might be a thread here… that being I love independant thinking. I have always believed that truth was worth sacrificing for and independant thinking was the only path on which one would be able to find it.

Independent thought however requires the foundation of strong study and awareness of common sense so that even a common or a very educated person can be capable of independent thought. Ours is a country whose origins were strong in the knowledge of the Judeo Christian principles and at the same time good old fashion horse sense. It’s no wonder that we have had such an incredible independence in our past. A past that was a product of men and women who together asked hard questions of themselves and each other, that I hope will continue as years go on.

To mine and your well thought out Independant thinking and our Independence Day!
