Turtles and Freedom: Happy 4th of July

Jul 04, 2021
I have a soft spot for turtles, ever since childhood, when I had a pet turtle like this one.
When Vicki showed me this picture, I felt a smile rise from my inner child. And that gave me a moment to reflect: I have enjoyed more Freedom than I ever realized growing in this country. We usually spent the holiday with family and friends in back yards or at the beach. What does the 4th of July conjure up for you? Any fond memories?"
