There is something special
about human nature.
It is an all absorbing granter
of the graces which we hold dear.
It is what sets us apart
in our unity as a species.
It is what gives us the hope
that tomorrow will be better than today.
And no matter what one person may say
to limit the freedom of anyone
of our brothers and sisters
those limitations are limited
compared to the power of nature.
No matter what may be said or done
I am free.
Hatred, fear, violence, wrath
these are all tools used to achieve goals.
But compared to compassion, kindness, sincerity
those tools are like useless rusty bits of metal.
No matter what may happen
to me, to you, to our friends
we are all free.
The final question is:
Are we brave enough to embrace that freedom?
