Editor’s note

Freedom. What a word! What is freedom? Is it the ability to do what you wish as you wish? Wouldn’t that be nice? Unfortunately in today’s society we have so many obligations that we don’t get much freedom. So then how about freedom of speech? Yet again we are reformed to be a certain way in our surroundings. Not a bad thing if you think about it. If everybody was to say exactly what’s on their minds then we wouldn’t be liked very much. I am sure most of you were told as children “if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all”. After all we all have feelings that don’t want to be hurt, and we don’t want to inflict emotional pain onto others. While we must accept people for who they are, we must also try to control our behaviours. – Sarah
