One of my favorite Maya Angelou lines is,
“As soon as healing takes place,
go out and heal somebody else.”
I think about this a lot —
I teach this everyday
and I have lived it the last decade
I don’t know what the meaning of life is,
I honestly don’t really know what is going on most of the time
But from what I have seen
sharing your light with others —
consistently and practically —
is key
not only for the world
but for you
I don’t think we are meant to live just for ourselves
I have only ever seen that lead someplace small and sad
And so this timely reminder from Mandela:
“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains,
but to live in a way that respects
and enhances the freedom of others.”
I hope we remember this
not only today
but every day
And that we take action in our own faithful way
to help those still trapped
those still shackled
And I hope we remember on this day
how incredibly fortunate we are
if we are celebrating Independence Day
here in the USA
