Independence Day, 2014

To my fellow American readers:

I hope the series on Cuban defectors this week has helped in a small way to remind myself and others that the freedoms we take for granted are far too often not granted to others. In celebrating the holiday today, it’s liberty we’re celebrating, as well as those who fight to maintain it.

Enjoy the company, parades, cookouts, the World Cup matches and of course, the national pastime (complete this year with special new hats)!

Happy Independence Day, everyone!



This is not my first foray into the digital world; however, this blog has a different purpose.

Some of what is posted here will be connected to my writing for The Collegian (main website in progress), though much of this material may be simply my experiments with writing.

In either case, I hope you enjoy what you read. Feel free to discuss.
