It’s the day after our 4th of July here in the United States; a day commemorating our proclaimed date of Independence from Britain’s rule in 1776.
Freedom comes at a cost … and sometimes we forget just how high that cost can be.
Here’s a beautiful no bells & whistle’s must see tribute to a man who chose to do all that he could at a time when the cost of freedom for so many was well beyond their reach.
Sir Nicholas Winton – BBC Programme “That’s Life” aired in 1988.
Take a moment to reflect
No matter where in the world you are I ask that you take a moment to reflect on what freedoms you enjoy. What costs were paid to get them? And who paid them? What costs there are in maintaining them? Plus, what will it cost to lose them?
Most importantly, please consider your choices. Which freedoms are you willing to fight for? Which freedoms are you willing to help others have?
Two of the greatest freedoms we humans share
Two of the greatest freedoms we humans have are the freedom to choose our thoughts and the freedom to choose our actions. Both take courage.
Please, do not squander them nor take them lightly … for the cost of inaction is often a much greater burden only calculated and realized in hindsight.
Rock your path wisely.
