Juneteenth, also known as Juneteenth Independence Day or Freedom Day, is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. state of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America.
Remember this time in history and realize that everyone should be free to live their lives as they wish.
In a world of corporation, conglomeration, chains
There is a spirit of being Indie
Indie films on a screen
Indie bands with new, exciting music in your ear
Indie food with a different taste
Indie artists who paint outside the lines sometimes
Indie writers and poets with something radical to say
Indie wrestlers wanting their time in the ring
Indie people seeking freedom to do their own thing without consequence
There is something refreshing about being Indie
You can find a new spirit tied to creativity
There’s a risk of being Indie but the reward is eternal
Indie means being Independent and Interdependent simultaneously
The thing about being Indie is that you take a chance
That is worth it all
Many people have worked a long time to make this country a place of freedom and opportunity for ALL! Their sacrifice and labor should be honored and respected. People should have equal access to life, liberty and happiness. To discriminate or promote fear and hatred is fundamentally unAmerican. We should turn the page and live in a twenty first century where we are moving forward and not retreating to a bygone age. Peace to all.
To all my friends who love this country but don’t subscribe to the notion that you have to always like it I salute you. Independence is a gift that can be taken away as easily as it was given. God’s grace should be available to all nations without favor toward one. Everyone should have a seat at the table of discussion and we should all have access to things that give us the promise of life, liberty and happiness without discrimination. Independence Day is a important time to consider what this nation is still becoming. Independence doesn’t mean always going it alone because we are still accountable to one another for our actions. Patriots come in all forms and viewpoints and they don’t always carry arms. Let freedom truly ring…Just saying.
