As I was remembering the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the attacks on the four Americans last year in Benghazi, I was reminded of the conference that I attended earlier this year in Sacramento. One of the workshops offered a Skype interview with a man who had been a victim of torture. I cant remember what country he said he was from, but because of the publicity he has received he is no longer allowed in his country and has to take precautions on a daily basis.
Not only was he a victim of torture, but he remains a victim of torture because he has to live his daily life in fear and precaution. This story makes me grateful for the structure that our country has, the freedoms that we live each and every day. A lot of us dont pay enough attention to these freedoms, but they are truly special. I am grateful for this countrys liberties.
