World Freedom Day
In many parts of the world, freedom is something that is taken for granted—the freedom to choose any religion we want (or no religion at all), the freedom to be in a relationship with the person we love, the freedom to travel…the list goes on
Unfortunately, there are many places in the world where these freedoms are not accessible to the majority of people who are forced to live empty and unfulfilling lives so that the rulers of their countries do not imprison them or something worse.
If you do not know what it means to be afraid to express your opinion, then you can consider yourself very lucky to live in a place where freedom is a priority and a basic human right. And like everything good, freedom should be celebrated, and that is what World Freedom Day is about.

For many people, it is crazy to think about a world without freedom. Many people have experienced freedom throughout their lives. But for many people, this is not the case, and that is why it is important for us to understand this and find ways to make changes.
History of World Freedom Day
World Freedom Day was created as a reminder of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The date is not so much about the wall itself, but rather about what it symbolized. The fall of this wall meant the end of communism in Central and Eastern Europe.
It was created to celebrate the reunification of loved ones separated by the Iron Curtain and different ideologies, and ultimately serves as recognition that the determination of the masses can push boundaries, break unfavorable resolutions, and ultimately determine the type of leadership they desire to live in a freer and more just society.
