Do you remember July 4, 1976? I remember it well. Our nation was celebrating its Bicentennial—200 years of freedom. It was a day to celebrate! Even though I was only 12 years old at the time, I understood very well what we were celebrating—and the cost involved. Many had sacrificed so that I might live free.
In another part of the world, a celebration was also occurring on July 4, 1976. It was another celebration of freedom, but for a different reason.
