The Freedom that Matters Most is…

The freedom that matters most is how we feel inside about ourselves. Prisons, ghettos, concentration camps, barrios, favelas, colonies can restrict mind and body, kill both, but until the spirit is extinguished, the possibility of freedom lives. Freedom’s about choices. The self-grounded, self-motivated decision to imagine (create) a range of choices and the resolve to choose among them.
