Free July 4th eCards – Roz Remembers What Freedom Really Means

July 4th / Independence Day carries such a heavy message of celebration — especially in today’s world.  I believe for those of us (including myself) who took our independence and freedom for granted… 911 / September 11, 2001 was a huge wake-up call.

Before I came to the web all those years ago… I never really understood, or maybe understood is an understated word… I just never considered or took notice of what the Patriotic Holidays and Events really stood for – REALLY STOOD FOR!

That all changed when I researched my very first Patriotic website:  Memorial Day in CyberSpace.

I met and communicated with those who served and also visited tribute pages of POWs/MIAs and those who paid the ultimate price.  It was a gut wrenching experience, but it brought it all home to me — forever.

As I researched I visited website after website.  These were real people.  They were someone’s loved ones… children, brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, fathers, grandfathers, grandmothers, etc. etc.  I never looked at a Patriotic Holiday quite the same way after that.  I realized just how real it was and how those who fought were real people even though they were not my blood relatives.  They are my relatives by country!

Then came 911… Another rude awakening – the worst ever!

I was personally trapped in Manhattan that day.  I had to walk miles to get out of the city as the entire borough and all surrounding areas were locked down.  Buses passed us by, we had no way out and had no real idea of what was going on, except it was VERY BAD and we needed to GET HOME QUICKLY.  But there was no way!

Strangers were helping strangers, I remember walking and walking and walking some more — in those days I was not used to walking as I am today!

I remember wondering if I was going to die walking, I remember wondering where the police were, why was the Mayor not doing anything to help, why did we not know what was going on!  Little did I know… they were all down at the World Trade Center!

It was like a movie, but this time I was in it!  I wondered how it was going to end!  I had nothing to compare this horror with!  I was petrified I was going to die… walking with all these strangers… no one would know where any of us was!

THEN… when I finally did get home… I put the TV on and saw the Twin Towers fall over and over and over and over again – a picture I will never forget, it all came home to me once and for all.

All those looking for loved ones, all those who were lost, and then the police, ems workers, firefighters, etc. who risk their lives everyday for us… who run into burning buildings while others run out.  It can’t get much more real than that.  My heart breaks for those who are lost and worse yet for those left behind to pick up the pieces.

Why am I going on and on about this when the title of this entry is Free July 4th eCards, because July 4th / Independence Day is what this is all about.  We live in a country where we can do what we want/when we want… as long as we do not hurt anyone and we do not break the law.  That gives us a lot of freedom.  We have freedom of speech, freedom to worship, freedom to start business, etc.

I want to do my part to help people celebrate.  Therefore, Say It With eCards is providing a way for Non Say It With eCards Judaic Greetings Club members to send specially designed Judaic Themed Independence Day eCards / Judaic Themed July 4th eCards.
