in just a few days, it will be the 4th of July. Scenes of picnics, parades and fireworks will be everywhere. This is how we celebrate the holiday. It is the day we set apart from all others, to honor the anniversary of the birth of our nation. It is the day America declared our Independence. What is the meaning of Independence Day?
Do we ever reflect on the hardship and terror that the early Americans must have lived through day after day? Do we truly understand the hopes and dreams that lay secretly hidden away in the hearts of the people back then?
On July 4th, 1776, America started an insurrection against the king. Thirteen years before, back in 1763, England instituted a series of taxes and policies that not only hindered trade and economic growth in the colonies, but without representation in Parliament, also violated their rights as English subjects.
It took the early Americans 9 years to understand the futility of appealing to England, all the while enduring the heavy hand of the king. Committees were formed in 1772, exploring options for a Congress of our own. Our first Continental Congress convened in 1774. The following year, 1775, our Congress was declared traitorous and British troops, sent to quell the uprising met resistance from the colonial militia and the Revolutionary War began.

Ken, also conducts a weekly peer support group for people with brain injuries that is modeled after his recovery process and the quality of life he has gained. Support isn't always what we "get" from others - but also what we "give" to improve our condition instead of waiting and hoping our condition will improve. Ken has been living with a brain injury for 38 years and has learned many ways to make his life easier after his brain injury. He would like to share his experiences and lessons with you to make your journey easier and have life be less complicated for you and your family.
