Eleanor Roosevelt wrote; “Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry his own weight, this is a frightening prospect.”
I think we are living in a time where we freedom is mixed up with chaos. I was taught that “Your freedom ends where my begins, so we should learn to compromise for the greater good of all.” It was framed and hung in my father’s office. I think about a lot now. As I watch all the violence and listen to all the hate I wonder if anyone else what taught the things I was taught.
It is odd to me that people think destroying things and people are helpful. It just creates more problems.
I completely understand different opinions. I understand passion. I understand accountability. I may be way too logical.
Where do you believe your rights begin and end?
