I hope that everyone is having a wonderful 4th of July celebration. As you celebrate this day dedicated to the pursuit of freedom, remember that, freedom is like a basket of rare and extremely valuable gems. Its cost is high, and its worth is incalculable, so guard it with all your might, lest one day you discover that by carelessness and foolish trading, you have lost an irreplaceable fortune.

Hmm, a great fortune indeed. After weeks of being stuck at home, and getting a small taste of life without freedom, I appreciate it more than ever. And I hope that I never make a fool pup’s bargin, and batter my freedom away for false peace and fake gold.
