"Knights, the gift of freedom is yours by right. But the home we seek resides not in some distant land; it's in us, and in our actions on this day! If this be our destiny, then so be it. But let history remember, that as free men, we chose to make it so!"
--Arthur Castus (King Arthur)
Liberty cannot be realized unless one's spirit is free. How you think and feel is in your dominion alone. If you allow others to intrude on your spirit, to influence or control it, then that is your choice. You have surrendered your freedom voluntarily.
It is impossible for someone else to compromise your spirit unless you allow it.
On this Independence Day, declare your spirit free.
