Independence: State of being not dependent; a state of mind in which a person acts without bias or influences from others; self-direction
In a time when the word freedom is becoming more a tool of the devil than for truth, it's good to go back and remember the true definition of such words. And in these last days it's good to remember personal peace comes from remembering our own strength, power and obligation to stand as lights in a darkening world.
"Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make great use of it!"
- - John Adams in a letter to his wife - -
