faith in freedom

freedom-cage1

This is going to be a short post today. I can’t really go into the events leading up to it, but the last several days have been testing my beliefs… most especially that exercising freedom and self-responsibility are more important than any other ideas behind young people seizing the potential of second chances.

It is extremely difficult not to be directive in specifying how you want other people to be. But I resist doing it, even though not telling others is about as natural as water flowing uphill. I think people wanting to do a certain thing is more important than their complying with someone else’s idea of what they should do.

It is the basis of true pro-social behavior.
