As I march onward through this Freedom Season I am reminded that the work is not done.  There are so many around the globe that continue to fight for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to advance in society.  These are things we sometimes take for granted but they are rights that many around the globe are inhibited from expressing.   We must all take time and use our freedom of expression to speak for those who can not!!  I pray that one day we will live in a world that is fair and just where Freedom reigns.  What are your visions of freedom?
