Celebrating ‘Interdependence’

A great quote from a recent newsletter from my friends of the band Odon Soterias:

Today, on the fourth of July, we are sad not to be with rainbow family to celebrate our interdependence when the rest of the nation revels in its individuality and separateness from one another by spending millions of dollars on fireworks to commemorate so-called independence. Cornerstone has given us hope to follow the coup that is the Kingdom of God, a community of chaotic-messed-up people learning to reject the cultural ideology of self, giving up on the American Dream which is a nightmare to the poor and the rest of the world, and choosing to dance in celebration of our interdependence instead.

Just to help keep things in the right perspective on this particular holiday!
