They say the Fourth of July is Independence Day, the day the United States became an independent state. While this is true and is important to celebrate, there are many other meanings of Independence Day. Independence Day is the day you get your license and are able to drive for the first time, the day you get your first car and no longer have to depend on others for a ride or borrow a car, the day you get your first job or leave a job you hate, or the day you move into your first house or apartment. We take these things for granted, but what if one or all of these things were taken away from you suddenly? How would you cope? Would you be scared, sad, and angry? The world would probably expect you to pretend to be brave and tell you to stay positive, but you’re a human and break down sometimes just like the rest of us do, especially when we lose our independence.
