Today is the national holiday in America. The day on Independence. Few people and countries can claim to be independent. Politics and financial interests usually are in charge and not the will of the people.
That is why whenever you have enough funds to buy a home, to go on a vacation and have some reserves, you are relatively independent, and you should celebrate that fact.
It is a nice privilege to have. And because of inflation and other economic factors, it might become something rarer today.
