Humanity was made for freedom. It is the one unifying value of all peoples. It is the root of all joy. Love of freedom is what we all have in common, regardless of race, country, language, religion. We are terrified by the thought of losing it and become discouraged and desperate when it is taken. Then come the tears of helplessness and despair.
Liberty is sacred. It is bestowed on us from God; not from governments that can give and take so easily.
Freedom from persecution and fear, freedom from illness, freedom from ignorance, from terror and anxiety, from hunger and poverty.
