Freedom of Choice
Returning after the 2013 Independence Day Holiday makes it apposite to reflect on freedom of Choice.
Independence, sovereignty and freedom of Choice are more than words; they are concepts and ideas that we hold as defining values. As we joyously pick up the “staff of freedom” we honorably accept the value of responsibility on the other side of the staff.
Freedom and Responsibility
The tension of freedom and responsibility works like a rubber band. We are drawn to freedom but we know we must be responsible. Freedom is autonomy and responsibility is honor. We have the freedom of Choice, let’s use it wisely.
- We have the freedom to fill up on doughnuts and the responsibility to keep ourselves healthy and fit.
- You can enjoy the freedom of dreaming but also take responsibility to be relentless.
- Enjoy the freedom to choose and embrace the responsibility to be judicious.
- You have the freedom to avoid and the responsibility to serve.
- You can relax but you have the responsibility to become the person you are meant to be.
“The price of greatness is responsibility.” Winston Churchill
