Today as I give thanks for living in the land of the "free," I'm deeply troubled by the myriad of ways our country continues to infringe upon the freedom of its citizens, especially as it pertains to women and reproductive rights.
When I feel all hope for justice is lost, I look to the patience and determination spiritual activists like these employ to create lasting global change. This reminds me that real freedom is a state of mind, dependent on inner, not outer victories.
Just for today, I'm giving thanks for freedom's small victories, like being able to enjoy a vegan + gluten free cookout, Vegan Man's geolocation of the best American veggie dog, and this week's AWEAR2014 style icon, rocking red, white and blue fashion #madeintheUSA. Vive la liberté! Enjoy the long weekend. : )
