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

“Freedom is a system based on courage.” Charles Peguy

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.

  • Hi Kat!

    I do like to come across like-minded people online and have found your page and your articles most interesting.

    I would love to join you on one of your 15 minute Friday sessions but being in Australia limits me time wise.

    I look forward to visiting your site soon though. Thank you for the value you provide.

    • Hello Sonia. So glad you stopped by. Being halfway around the world plus opposite hemispheres definitely screws up the planning time. However, we could plan to pre-record a session, which I’ve done with a few other Fast Action Fridays Tipster guests. And, of course, you can listen to any of the replays at your convenience. Let’s plan a chat sometime to explore the possibilities.
