On July 1st Canadians celebrated Canada Day, and on July 4th the US celebrated Independence Day. Both are well-known symbols of national pride.

Independence is a tricky thing. We need independence to thrive but if we become TOO independent, we risk losing our humanity.

For the rest of this month, let’s celebrate "Interdependence" as a reminder of the importance of connection and community.

Couples strengthen their love when they grow together, and friends bond when they face challenges together.

Communities thrive when they collaborate, and collaborators strengthen their impact by establishing a strong community.

Customers need businesses to make products, and businesses need buyers to purchase them. Small brands rely on larger corporations, and large brands expand when they support smaller partners.

And, nations grow when they honor their neighbors, and neighboring countries enrich their citizens when they appreciate all nations and cultures.

Let us be AS grateful for our interdependence as we are for our independence.
