the day that we honor and remember those who risked their lives to fight for our freedom.
freedom against tyranny.
freedom…its a powerful word…it’s a powerful ideal.
freedom is also a responsibility we all share to take seriously.
our freedom fighters did not give a shit what starbucks holiday coffee cups look like.
freedom actually allows us to choose to drink coffee from that cup or not.
freedom allows us to wish others well during many different holidays, from many different beliefs, customs and cultures..or not. whatever we personally prefer.
freedom does not allow us tho to take our beliefs or lack there of, to accept or erase..and force our agenda’s on the rest of the world.
sadly, freedom even allows us to focus on the petty and trivial instead of some of the truly important global issues threatening life and freedom for billions.
we need to get over the starbucks cup and remember those that died for a better world.
