Since today is Independence Day we thought we’d talk a little about that. First what does it mean. Independence Day is a day to celebrate the well Independence of the 14 colonies from British Rule! The USA was a brand new nation. The Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.
Ok, we have what The fourth of July or Independence Day means ie the history behind it. But what does it truly mean to be independent? To truly be independent means no to be reliant on anyone or in particular as far as the USA goes dependent on any other countries such as Britain! We celebrate this day as the 4th of July. The USA is free of any other rule. We have our liberties, our freedoms, and our justice in this country.
How do Dogs help with Independence?
As we mentioned before all of us, that is Scout, Liberty, Freedom, and Justice are all training with Pam to be her service dogs. Now what does that mean for Independence? As we mentioned before Pam is a US Army Veteran. And with any disability there is some sort of dependence on something else to get through this thing we call life! Whether it’s someone with PTSD who may be dependent on mind numbing drugs or other therapies, to physically disabled people who are dependent on others to help them in everyday life tasks, or a blind person who is dependent on others to show them the way and help them walk from one room to the next without banging into walls, furniture, etc.
Service Dogs and Independence
A service dog can and will help that individual become less dependent and more INDEPENDENT of others. And service dogs work as a team with that individual, so they are not dependent on each other they work with each other to complete a task. Helping those veterans that helped you have the life you have here in the USA to be more independent for others and to be able to live their life again as they once would have.
What Independence Day does NOT mean!
Independence Day does not mean to be selfish and to be having stupid BBQ that take Independence away from innocent animals lives, in fact taking away their lives with that murderous burger. Not meaning to be selfish and destroy the environment with the smoke from BBQ’s and those illegal fireworks! Also it doesn’t mean being selfish and thinking only of your STUPID pleasure and set out off fireworks to scare innocent wildlife and put them and our environment in danger. of course it also does not mean to be selfish and to get your kicks from these STUPID mindless one time “entertainment” danger zones and scare Veterans who have fought for your exact freedoms and independence to live in the land they love! That
