Tonight my neighborhood is abounding with fireworks, it seems everyone around me has some kind of noisemakers going off and lighting up the sky.
I think it’s more abundant this year because all our big fireworks shows were cancelled because of Covid, so more people bought their own to shoot off at home.
I enjoy it all to a point, as I am all for celebrating the freedoms we have and am very grateful for them, but when it goes on and on until all hours of the night then I have to say enough is enough and it’s getting quite close to the midnight hour right now, so I am about to say “Enough!” 😊
National Freedom Day in America commemorates the 11th Amendment which abolished slavery signed by President Lincoln on February 1, 1865.
On this day we pause to give thanks for the freedoms we have, and pray for those peoples who do not have freedom, for even though slavery was abolished all those years ago unfortunately it still exists today worldwide.
Modern slavery exists today in many places worldwide. Be it sexual exploitation, forced marriage, or forced labor, many women, men and children are victims.
You can help set them free by spreading awareness, making a donation to help one of the many organizations in their fight to stop this, or simply just pray that those who can help or intervene will do so.
I have teamed up with Dressember.org this month as a Advocate to spread awareness and raise funds. If you’d like to donate to my team’s campaign “Help Stop the Chains of Abuse” I would very much appreciate your support.
I will be giving a free handmade Origami Dress Ornament to anyone who makes a donation of $5.00 or more by December 15th.
