Are you free?

While enjoying the cool breeze of an afternoon wind. My eyes caught the lovely figures inside a cage. They seemed to enjoy as if not knowing that they were inside a wired box. Oh how I wish I can feel what they felt. The feeling of freedom. Is freedom the absence of restriction? what do you think? Well, I am not a philosopher, and I admit that knowing the details of it is none of my forte. Ok, back to the question-are you free? The answer to it is, it depends. for me, am free in some aspects, but a prisoner in other situations. Just like the birds, they were happy because they were stress free, but they are not free to fly.

Michael Jackson is just a man

After reading the news that Michael Jackson passed away, I felt a feeling that I often feels during the times when friends left this earth for good. Michael Jackson though how extraordinary he is in his talent, is still a man. Meaning, is not exempt to experience death. Sometimes people forget that they are still human; specially when they are at the peak of success enjoying the privileges it offers. The word of God says "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the WHOLE WORLD and lose his own soul". It is indeed a fact, that all of us will become a part of the memory lane. We often remember God in bad times, let us remember God also in good times.
