“Freedom is the ability to choose my boundaries and decide my limits”- Ebube Agu
Breakdown: Ok, so this is officially the first time I’m putting up my own quote… “I feel like breakdancing”😁 *in the words of Lisa’s father in Coming To America* (that’s if you remember the movie oh, lol)
Freedom is a dear topic to me, partly because it was what my baccalaureate thesis was on, or my thesis was on it because it is a dear topic to me, can’t say for sure…🤔
Anyways, every man has an innate, conscious or subconscious desire to possess their own freedom and control their own limits. This quote simply shows the desire of man: Freedom, as being one’s ability to decide whether or not to go, where or when to stop, what to do, and when to do it, and every other possible decision. When one doesn’t have this ability, it can be said that such a person is not free. One can only be free to the degree that he/she controls their time and steers their own decisions.
So before you go on proclaiming your freedom (concerning anything), ask yourself these:
– Do I choose my own boundaries?
– Am I in charge of my limits??
– Am I truly Free???
Fact: Freedom can be defined as- “The power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants.”
The implication of this is that ANYTHING that challenges your POWER to “choose” as YOU desire, is an enemy of your freedom; whether Living or non-living objects.
It could be Virtual games, Movies, Books, Job, Friends, Relatives, Sports, Habits, and the list goes on.
Everyone has one; What’s Yours?
On to more historic facts;
“The Statue of Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde) is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor in New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, designed by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, a French sculptor, was built by Gustave Eiffel and dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was a gift to the United States from the people of France. The statue is of a robed female figure representing Libertas, the Roman goddess, who bears a torch and a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law) upon which is inscribed the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. A broken chain lies at her feet. The statue is an icon of freedom and of the United States, and was a welcoming sight to immigrants arriving from abroad.”
