Freedom is Fleeting

Freedom is in danger throughout this planet.  Dictators in all corners of the earth try to control people’s behavior and even their thoughts.  This past week in Turkey, protesters who had enough of such control took to the streets to make their voices heard.

Although freedom may be fleeting, dictators always fall.  No matter how high he reaches, a tyrant eventually becomes the sand that children play in.  Men who establish freedom for other people, however, are remembered like lights shining in a dark place.
