We are free

We are free.

We are free to do harm or not.

We are free to lie or tell the truth, to say hurtful words or remain silent.

We are free to steal or not, to kill or not, to respect or not.

This freedom has nothing to do with books or constitutions or laws, nor with place or culture or religion. 

It has nothing to do with individual rights either, nor anything established.

We were born free to choose our behaviour.

Every day, every time we make a decision on what to do or say, we are free to choose harm or love.

We are free.

It is an immense privilege.
