Stories - Independence Day Reflection

Stories set a powerful context and lay a firm foundation for building a better future. We do this by learning from multiple points of view and experiences.  Arguably, our personal stories give meaning to our lives and construct our identities. There is both unity and multiplicity in stories, diversifying our national narrative. This causes freedom to mean different things to different people; our country is struggling to integrate a fragmented freedom narrative.
