Where Tag Surfers Relate

Happy 4th July

Globalization and independence no longer match, with globalization comes interdependence.  So we say Happy Interdependence Day.

World events make it extremely obvious how interdependent we are:  earthquakes, floods, fires, tornados, internal migration, wars, drought, cyclones, triumphs, good news – all show how much we are dependent on each other as we might be in England and have family suffering in the United States or China or Bangladesh or Zimbabwe.  We are no longer alone, independent, each of us needs each other.
