Today as we celebrate 20 years of democracy on Freedom Day here in South Africa, I am filled with immense gratitude for those who paid with their lives so that we can have this freedom today. As a woman living in Africa, I am deeply grateful for being free from oppression and having the freedom to live life fully. I am thankful for the freedom of having had a choice as to the man I married – as for many women this is still not a free choice. As a woman in Africa, I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to go to school and study. Living in this amazing country called South Africa, I have the freedom to express my views and to serve the God of my choosing without fear of persecution. As a woman I am free to create and work in a business of my choosing. I am free to make a contribution to others, to serve and to love.
What will you do with your freedom today?
