There is something about mankind that sets us apart from all of the other creatures that God has created. God has given man a free will that allows us to not react to everything from instinct or emotion but from intent. This freedom we have from God has been, throughout the ages, something that we have tried to take away from one another. Whether it is a culture, a country, or a person, it seems as though there is always someone else who is trying to direct our thoughts. As we celebrate the independence expressed by a group of like-minded citizens, let us also remember to celebrate the one who made us free from all sin and truly allowed us to take our place as citizens of Heaven.
