“To have freedom is only to have that which is absolutely necessary to
enable us to be what we ought to be.”
-Ibn Rahel (Medieval Christian chronicler, lived in Egypt)
One of my children’s songs has a line in it that says: “You gotta be you and
you gotta do what you love to do.” That’s freedom. Freedom lets us be
ourselves. We often take freedom for granted – it feels so natural to us. But
we need to recognize it every once in awhile, and celebrate it.
