How do you value freedom?

Freedom has lately been in the news.

Many of us use this noun for granted and crib about other issues.

  • Ask those soldiers who fight in harsh temperatures and unfriendly environment to keep their civilians safe.
  • Ask those innocent people who have been imprisoned by unjust laws of a country.
  • Ask a neighborhood where people are instructed to stay indoors because of a civilian who has gone berserk and is carrying a weapon and has injured a few.
  • Ask people who are suffering from a disease and have been instructed to stay indoors cause of their low immunity.
  • Ask those people who have been chained inside a house for 10 long years, while undergoing physical and emotional abuse.
  • Ask people who are dependent on others for their care since they are weak and in poor physical condition.
Mantra for today: Freedom is precious, do not take it for granted. Show your gratitude towards it.

Indeed, so many of our rights and liberties should never be taken for granted...there are many out there who would take them away if given the right circumstances. :)

So many of us take our Freedom for granted Ruchira, So many moan each day about their lot in life and yet should they open their eyes around the world or indeed around and about them, they would see just how lucky they are..
A wonderful Mantra...

Freedom is so very Precious .. And we should be grateful for the gifts we have in our lives that so many would wish to share..
Wonderful thoughts........

Add to this that we live in an era of eroding personal freedoms--food for thought Ruchira--

Not only show gratitude for it, but beware of the freedoms we are losing in this country. Well said, Ruchira.
