The Declaration of Independence
came into being
a group of people
they could not go it
Yet, we still believe the myth of
the self-made man (or woman).
We stand in awe of those who
“go it alone”
“make their own way.”
Then, we beat ourselves up for not being a trailblazer.
In fact, anyone who is truly
master of their domain
declaration of interdependence.
They know they can not/could not
be where they are without
a support system,
a band of sisters and brothers.
This is as true
at work as it is at home,
at home as it is in our community,
in our community, as it is in our country,
in our country as it is in our world.
We forget our interdependence at our peril.
