Independence Day

This dark image of Lady Liberty is a challenge to face our country's dark history and heal our nation's wounds. We do that by renewing our commitment to live up to the ideals enshrined our our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and that beautiful poem by Emma Lazarus.


What is Wisdom?  To be wise is to have the power of discerning and judging properly what is true and right.  To me this is the essence of the spiritual journey - developing and exercising the power of discernment.


This image brings to mind John Lennon's Imagine and the idea of daring to dream of the world we want to create.  What if we take it a step further?  What if we dare to create the world we dream of?
