Monday Mindset: Independence

Independence is defined as the quality or state of being independent. It can be attributed to a person or a territory. It also means self-governing. Lately and too commonly, independence is associated with a defiant stance. July 4th is the celebration of our independence from our dependence from the monarchy of Britain. But, have you considered that at the same time the 13 colonies became interdependent with each other?

As we enter into our Federal Holiday of July 4th, I encourage you to think about how are we, as a nation, interdependent. Who and what are we interdependent on? Could we be more interdependent? Could we be less?

But, I also want you to ponder what you became independent from but also what or who you became interdependent on?

Have a Happy and Safe 4th.

Lewis), replacing the word “Atomic Bomb” with “Virus”: “If we are all going to be destroyed by an atomic bomb, let that bomb when it comes find us doing sensible and human things—praying, working, teaching, reading, listening to music, bathing the children, playing tennis, chatting to our friends over a pint and a game of darts—not huddled together like frightened sheep and thinking about bombs.”
