Growing up as a preachers kid during the 1960s-1970s there was much to do about freedom, the Civil Rights Movement and the Viet-Nam Anti-war Movement. The music was phenomenal as it spoke of unity and freedom from the oppression of authority. Although I did not experience true freedom until three decades latter I recognize true freedom as the ability to choose what I say and believe in without hesitation or remorse. Freedom is security and confidence in one's self and all I do. Freedom is living present tense 24/7.
