Sometimes a constant crumbles into a variable. It might seem an unimportant change to an outsider, it might even pass completely unnoticed to everyone around us, but suddenly and without warning the world we lived in is gone and will never return. We didn’t choose the change, we didn’t ask for it, we maybe never even thought about its possibility. But it may just be what we need.
Such a change has happened now. Embrace it, strike for it, because this time, freedom is its goal.
