World events suggest that freedom is a never-ending story. How strange to take for granted a lifetime of freedoms while watching a TV broadcast of other peoples risking their lives for basic rights.
How will the drama in Egypt resolve? It is an engrossing story. Keep turning the page.
The story of freedom never ends because even for those of us who were born into or brought to a nation built on the concept of freedom may still seek independence of a different kind.
Is your mind free? Your body? Are you writing the book or song you know is in you? Have you embarked on the creative journey of starting a business or relationship or even a personal evaluation you know is overdue?
Freedom is elusive; it drifts from our grasp if we don’t remain conscious of our choices, decisions and actions.
Sad to say, fear is a pernicious foe that quietly feeds on our personal freedom, imprisoning us with false information about risk and uncertainty and what others will think.
If the people of Egypt are brave enough to confront a powerful government, military might and fear of detainment and death, surely the rest of us in the “free” world can embrace creativity in new ways and deepen our understanding of the right to choose.
Embrace the suspense.. Story is an escape from hard fact and circumstances into the realm of possibilities.
