Now, more than ever, does the meaning of “Freedom” hold value to me. Last year I was thinking of the freedom to travel. This year, not so much. As I mentioned last month, I am enjoying the comfort of my backyard – particularly on a day like today with a warm breeze.
This year, equality is at the forefront of my mind when I think of “Freedom”. As realtors, we are held to a high legal and ethical standard through the Fair Housing Administration. Everyone is meant to be treated equally and fairly. My family enjoys living in a diverse community. We enjoy learning and experiencing different cultures – creating a well-rounded perspective. Sounds ideal. I know the world isn’t.
However, I believe we are fortunate to live in the United States. I have faith that we are embarking on an even “newer world”. Where Freedom will mean more than it did over 200 years ago.
Enjoy and celebrate this day, my friend.
