Reflecting on our lack of self-determination

To liberate oneself is:

To run away from the familiar into the embrace of the uncertain 
To dismiss the illusion of fate, to awaken to the possibilities
To map your own course, to captain your own ship
And to dare to live, just live.
Had the warriors of the past known how difficult a task our generation would find this to be, they would have refused to fight our battles. They would have refused to set us free. For what good would liberty do us, if we’re still slaves to false notions of security?
