Freedom rang across the valley
Battles quiet in a moment of silence
Independence day has given her life purpose
Free to walk without pain
Free to live in harmony
Free to give to others each day
Free to make her house a home
Smiles and laughter flow at liberty
Torture has with peace began!

    Freedom is indeed something to be valued, but I'm not sure that torture has ended and that life with peace is quite here. When I hear of the terrible atrocities in Syria and other countries, I can only weep.
