Another book I read this summer is Out of Captivity: Surviving 1,967 Days in the Columbian Jungle. This book moved me in more ways than one. Being held hostage by anyone or anything is truly harrowing, and then to live to tell the tale? Well, impressive.
So, here’s to America’s Independence Day: may we all appreciate the beautiful and wonderful country that we have the opportunity to live in, and may we all take a moment to think of those who fought and fight for our freedom. Let’s also think about those who are fighting for those same freedoms in their own countries. Even though we may not agree with them, many didn’t agree with George Washington, either.
(And I know, my summer reading list is quite uplifting, no?)
