The Unquenchable Thirst for Freedom

Evang3300

Listen to Audio (right click to save)

There it was again, displayed for all the world to see; hundreds of thousands of people, willing to risk everything for one thing - freedom. Over the weeks in that square, we watched a powerful, real-life struggle for freedom played out in a place called Liberation ("Tahrir") Square in Egypt. Once again, as we've now seen in other countries, the unquenchable passion to be free changed the nation.

Oh, it's not the first time. It's what happened in 1989 in that Old World Square in Romania where I walked a couple of years ago. On those cobblestones, 200,000 people dared to stand up to brutal oppression, and they toppled a dictator in a matter of days. The freedom flame is what drove thousands of oppressed people to "tear down that wall" in Berlin. And that yearning for freedom? It's what inspired a ragtag gaggle of farmers to grab their muskets 200 years ago to fight the British Army, the mightiest army in the world. And America was born.
