Because it’s the first week of July – and we in America celebrate our national independence day on Wed – I’m kicking the week off with quotes on Independence – and will be independent of blogging the rest of the week!
A declaration of the independence of America, and the sovereignty of the United States was drawn by the ingenious and philosophic pen of Thomas Jefferson, Esquire, a delegate from the state of Virginia.
Mercy Otis Warren

I love America more than any other country in this world, and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.
James A. Baldwin
And lastly – here’s a take on some fun with independence!

Gerald F. Lieberman
Remember that independence was created by what a group of people thought – and what you think creates your life.
So remember that you create your day, life, freedom by the way you think – make it magnificent!
