Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness – Freedom From Tyranny

Freedom

As Americans have gone about celebrating the 4th of July and their liberty and independence from what they considered tyranny and British oppression, I am reminded of the many ways in which humans continue to struggle with freedom in its many forms.

The definition from Dictionary.com – lib·er·ty [lib-er-tee] – noun, plural lib·er·ties.

1. freedom from arbitrary or despotic government or control.
2. freedom from external or foreign rule; independence.
