Let’s Celebrate INTERdependence!
This weekend our country celebrated our independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. I think that we should focus on the INTERdependence of our founding fathers working with the pioneers and settlers that made our independence a reality.
I feel that we have slipped into a modern culture that reveres personal independence and views interdependence or any element of vulnerability as a weakness. I definitely see this in our current system of elder care and with the individuals and families wrestling with entering the system.
