Last week, I featured an international mail art call on the subject of LOVE. This week, our MMMAC (Monday Morning Mail Art Call) deals with another oft elusive principle, FREEDOM.
As Americans, our country was founded on the premise that simple FREEDOMS are the right of everyone. Our forefathers fought for Freedom from oppression, Freedom from taxation and Freedom of religion, just to name a few.
In the United States, we have come to take FREEDOM in all forms for granted. We go about our daily routines relatively unconcerned for our own personal FREEDOM, unless some political or journalistic agenda brings us to question it. Even more rarely do we pause to consider the FREEDOM of other peoples from around the world.
“FREEDOM” Mail Art Call!
“…To live like a tree alone and free,
and like a forest in brotherhood… Nazım Hikmet Ran”
