Thoughts on Freedom

A major difference in peoples perspective on the world is how they look at freedom.

Two types of views:

1. Those who understand they have been given freedom and are willing to give some of it away.

2. Those who have been given freedom and want to keep it to their comfortable selves.

For example refugees: one person may say, “let them come” and be ok with giving up their freedom of comfort and understanding because the refugee comes from a different part for the world. The other will say, “don’t let them come” because I am not willing to give up my freedom of comfort and understanding.

We say we are the home of the “free and the brave”. I believe we need to be more brave for those that are not free.
