A Beautiful Audacious Idea...

Maybe it is all of the election hype, but my thoughts for the past week have centered on a single phrase: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal..."

Sometimes, a group of people with a beautiful, audacious idea will express something that resonates as inexorably true. And what begins as heresy to those in power stirs the hearts of others.

Philadelphia, the Underground Railroad, Normandy, the Berlin Wall, Tiananmen Square, Not for Sale... The most worthwhile endeavors in the world have to do with freedom.

So to the heretics, the abolitionists, the radicals and the freedom fighters...carry on. The beautiful, audacious idea still needs to be told.
