[in] dependence

We are supposed to celebrate our independence today... Which one?

Remind me of this event which is supposed to celebrate our freedom, our ability to make our own decisions... where we will live free, in our country, with our heads held high..
Remind me of this country which we are not supposed to leave... where we are supposed to feel safe enough to invest time and money and effort and love... where we will raise that which is most precious to us, our families...
Remind me...why tears of blood pass unnoticed on the cloth of freedom... and why the only course of action is elimination, not discourse, dialogue, or debate...
Remind me... should i forget, of this high cause where so many have been sacrificied...

It seems to me that we have been caught [in] our dependence... and mistake it for independence...

My heart goes out to Lebanese and Lebanon right now. Please know that people on the other side of the globe are thinking of you and wishing the assasinations to stop and the disagreements in the cabinent to end and for there to be peace.
