On this American Independence Day I’m grateful for more than what I can put to words. I’ve learned to be thankful for the blessings awarded from being born in this country, but I became even more so by looking within. Me and my family have been given boundless opportunities; I’ve been blessed to find the support I need to give me courage on my journey with Autism. Being a U.S. citizen started me on that path, but when I finally knew it in my heart, I had developed my own feeling of freedom from within. For me, that’s something that will never be taken away.
I wish all of my readers an awesome, fun filled, and safe Fourth of July with special musical inspiration from the late, great Whitney Houston: an American icon. May she rest in peace: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1QmeEdFOSc.
May you find the freedom and courage within yourselves.
