W. Somerset Maugham, was a British playwright, novelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era said, “ If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom, and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too.“
When we look around the world and all the circumstances that exist, maybe we should remember what the value of freedom is. Sometimes when you have grown up having you take for granite what you have. Maybe we should all ask ourselves, are we taking our freedoms for granite. If we find the answer is yes…then it is time to open our dictionary and look at the definition of the word. Then we should get a pad and pencil and write down what our freedoms are. Next, take that list and see which of those freedoms we want to do without. I dare say, we will find we do not want to give up one, not one of our freedoms. If that be the case, then we need to make sure we take our responsibilities seriously and protect those freedoms at all cost.
