Freedom and equality lie at the heart of our identity as a country. In fact, freedom is seen as a God-given right. It is part of the essence of being human, and this country was explicitly founded on that belief. We find it stated clearly in Thomas Jefferson's preamble to the American Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness ..."
But that kind of radical freedom has not happened in fact. That is why athletes kneel, and the LGBTQ community and friends campaign for equal rights, and parents of children with some disability lobby for good public education.
This month's theme: Freedom
