On Bastille Day, I’m stuck on wondering what “liberation” is.

Is it fighting tyranny?

Is it letting go of perceptions we cherish even if they defeat us?

Is it revenging those who told us what to do without our permission?

Is it risking unknowns to discover who we are?

Is it a selfish impulse?

Is it a primal drive that may, or may not, make sense?

Is it being free?

Is it connecting?

Is it possible?


About Mrs. Fitz

Hello! I'm Michele Fitzpatrick, a Chicago writer. Like our town, a work in progress. As a journalist, teacher and writing coach I think all of us live our stories and sharing them creates moments that remind us we're connected. And that is enough.
