“Freedom is never given; it is won.” — A. Philip Randolph
I was personally moved over the weekend by a story of what some have gone through to gain the freedoms we enjoy in this country, warts and all.
As we keep the freedom and independence train chugging past July 4, what area can you drive it into this week: new career possibility, business initiative, personal self-expression, relationship exploration?
It’s not handed to us. We have to grab it. And grabbing it means we must refuse something as it is and have the courage to stand for something else.
“Freedom means the opportunity to be what we never thought we would be.” –Daniel J. Boorstin
