In 2001, President George W. Bush designated November 9th as World Freedom Day to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of communism in Eastern and Central Europe.
Today we celebrate living in a country that affords us many freedoms—some that are taken for granted—and hope for future where all citizens of the world will be granted them as well. The freedom to say what we mean, the freedom to choose our careers, the freedom to love who we love, the freedom to travel the world...
We’ve all heard the mantra “Freedom isn’t free!” but have you ever really stopped to think about all things our forefathers endured in order for us to enjoy them today?
Take a moment and think about what you’ve been able to do in your lifetime that your ancestors might not have had the freedom to do in their day. Spend a moment appreciating the sheer luck of having been born in a place and a time that honors and pays homage to the tenets of individual freedom, the pursuit of happiness, and life and liberty for all.
