Most years, I reflect on my own personal meaning of Independence Day. I finally made my Declaration of Independence from the tyranny of alcohol, and I now have, not just an opportunity to live in that freedom, but also a responsibility to remain that way and to share those stars and stripes with others.

I consider the Life Ring meeting I attend on Fridays, my FNF…”Friday Night Family.” Such a great group, so
understanding and non-judgmental.
