Use your freedom to serve one another in Love... #GodBlessYou ...Specially in today's world where there is so much ignorance and craziness going on. I'd like to remind you that the majority of us have ancestors that came from other countries & most importantly, that we have way more things in common than we have apart. We all want to take care of our families, live a better life, contribute to society, give back, make a difference, know thyself, know God & be happy. We all cry, experience pain, love, loss, & have all the emotions you and I are familiar with. #human
Doesn't matter your ethnicity-That was God given. You did not choose the religion, country, or race you were born into. What are you doing with your freedom?
Lady Liberty's Promise is: if you work hard enough, you can be anyone you want to be in America, regardless of color, race, gender, religious background (or lack of), etc.
Lady Liberty was a gift from France, given to us on October 28th, 1886. The President of the French Anti-Slavery Society, Édouard René de Laboulaye gave her to us when we abolished slavery after the civil war.
"From 1886-1924, over 14 million immigrants passed by the statue. It was a sign of refuge for the poor and those escaping persecution, in search of a new start in the land of unlimited opportunity. Lady Liberty’s torch was a beacon of light, and a sign of hope for the disenfranchised who endured weeks at sea, dreaming of a better life in America. In the World Wars, she was the first and last thing soldiers would see as they departed and returned to America ready to sacrifice their lives reinforcing all of the freedoms that were fighting for." Here is to another Independence Day and to all those that fight to protect our freedom to be whoever we want to be. 🇺🇸
I hope this simple post in some way inspires you to unite our country. Use your freedom to serve one another in Love.
I am grateful for the Men & Women, those at home and abroad that have protected our freedom in the past and present.
We are all United under our flag and if we harness the power and spirit of Lady Liberty, the possibilities are limitless. #godblessamerica #4thofJuly #independenceDay
