When I think about Independence Day I think about our freedoms. The freedoms we, as Americans, often take for granted.
The movie Shawshank Redemption strikes me deeply when we talk about freedoms. A man wrongly accused, serving in a corrupt prison, with all of his basic rights forfeited... and yet he spends his life trying to give freedoms back to others. This moment in the movie reminds me to appreciate some of the simple freedoms we have.
