To be free

You can choose to wear red, pink or green. Have your eggs scrambled, poached or boiled. You can put your hair in a bun or let it hang loose around your shoulders or shave it all off if you please. You can have one child or none or an entire batallion, eat after sunset or stroll in a park. Stay single, get married, learn to drive or be an's really your call.

Ever wondered how fortunate we are to be part of a free society? The choices are ours. Most of them at least. Of course, there are battles to be won against free speech and expression, free thinking and opportunities. Bigger battles, as some call them. But some are fighting for the basics. For now, savour your physical freedom. It's more than many can ask for.
