The Spirit of Freedom

by Ellen Heston, inspired by a story told by me.

What does it mean to be free? What gives us that lump in our throat when we hear the strains of the Star Spangled Banner? Or the tune of Born Free goes through our minds and we find tears rolling down our cheeks...

Laura knew this feeling as a 10 year old riding her bike down a long hill in a small mid-western town in Illinois. Her world was small at that time, with few friends, but she knew the joy of nature, sunlight on trees, and the budding feelings of independence. This joy has carried her through her learning experiences, motherhood, marriage and many friendships and childhood. The spark of that bicycle goes on in "joy of life" to this day. She is at a crossroads now and the possibility of what is ahead is unlimited! Go Laura! Go with your spirit of freedom.
