Celebrating Freedom and Independence

In honor of this Independence Day I would like to take a moment to celebrate Ingrid Betancourt's release as a hostage in Columbia and her safe return to France. She is a reminder to me of how fragile our freedom can be and how beautiful it is to be able to walk this earth as free and loved individuals. After being held captive for years she is still able to have a brightness to her, a playfulness and an ability to express real gratitude and joy with a beautiful smile all the while emanating a lightness of being.

I am humbled by her strength and open-heartedness.

Happy Independence Day. May we all take pause and remember how incredibly lucky we are to be free...
