4th of July OR Why Travel Outside Your Own Country is so Important

My friend Tara is a college student who spent last semester in Copenhagen, and took advantage of every spare minute to travel around Europe.  The message on her postcard is a wonderful reminder of why travel is so important.  There's a huge difference between reading history and seeing its traces in person.

The above postcard of the Berlin Wall is an apt 4th of July posting, if nothing else as a reminder of what the lack of freedom looks like.

Happy 4th of July, everybody!
