Independence is a very complicated word. It can be bold or brutal, inclusive or biased, unifying or divisive, strong or weak, arrogant or loving, self-centered or caring for others, my people or those people, us versus them- with everything relentlessly pointing to us all together as one. Sometimes the reality of who we are in the current of this river isn't yet who we hope to become, but reflecting with purpose will always help us get closer to it.
