I said, "She's not a movie star, and she's not a celebrity, and she's not an expert, and Gayla's the first person who'd say she's not a saint. The really important thing about Gayla is she is ordinary. She's like you, and she's like me. She had freedom, and she was ready to use it."
Wealth or power does not equate with freedom. They can make hard choices easier and make pedestrian problems seem 10,000 feet below you, but they come with their own constraints.
We can choose not to see, we can choose not to hear, we can abdicate responsibility, but in so doing we subject ourselves to forces beyond our control.
Freedom isn't something you're owed, nor something you have - it's something you practice.
A good thing to be conscious of.
