I am choosing freedom.
A weekend with girlfriends found us talking about choices and where they lead; risks taken for freedom of all kinds.
This is written for my friends Tina and Karen who know what it means to courageously risk it all.
Here’s to risking it all for a dream.
Here’s to finally leaving when there is nothing more to give.
Here’s to those who came freely on ships, or shackled in chains, or fleeing with babies.
Here’s to those who choose escape from abuse, or poverty or a relationship that damages the soul.
Here’s to those who act, take a leap, or stand up and fight.
Here’s to those who courageously risk it all for freedom.
Without them, chances are, we wouldn’t be here to risk it all again.
