It's the day after the Fourth of July and the fireworks are done. Flags that hung high for the weekend are being taken down and folded away all over town.

But we can still today, and every day, celebrate our freedom.

I like to remind my daughter (who is almost eight) just how blessed and lucky we are to be women born in this country, in these United States of America. In many places of our world, women are still viewed as mere chattel to be bartered and sold.

As women in the USA, we are free to learn, to vote, to choose to marry or to remain single, to pursue a career or motherhood or some combination of the two. We are free to read any darn book we like and can usually find those books in our local library for free. We are free to worship as we please.

No matter what your politics, no matter whether you vote Republican or Democrat or none of the above, I hope you share the same respect and awe for the freedoms that we Americans are privileged to enjoy as our citizen birthrights.

Happy Fourth of July, all!
