What is freedom? What freedom – and its twin sibling, Liberty – truly is is opportunity. The chance to chase a dream or to see a challenge and then find a way to overcome it. At its heart, freedom is about innovation. It’s about having the ability to make a change for the better, to find a new way of doing things for the benefit of you, others, and the world at large. It is the right to try, fail, and then try again, for as many times as it takes to get it right.
Memorial Day. For those of us in America, it’s the holiday that marks the gateway to summertime – a season of lazy days at the shore, backyard barbecues, and road trips to visit the world’s largest ball of twine or maybe the Mystery Spot, a three-day weekend providing welcome respite from the rigors of our hectic work-a-day lives.
