To keep it simple: Four of you offered help to keep this free writing website going. Do the math. Generous as these writers are, it is not enough. I pay a monthly fee, and a yearly fee to offer my experience, publishing/writing intelligence and belief in words to you.
Some of you offered advice – I trust my web person and have done the research. The problem he needs to fix could have occurred with any server (or whatever it’s called – including CafePress. Here is the request I made for support last BTW: My web genius tells me that the cost of continuing Breakthrough is about to be a one-time charge of $1000 plus or minus. It is not his fault. The server (or some other teach euphemism) is requiring some new doo-dad bullshit so that I can keep creating Breakthroughs. Breakthrough Writing has been free. It will continue to be free, but I need more than a little help to pay for the new bullshit doo-dads. (Note: the narrator does not “tell” you she is angry; she “shows” you through her dialogue.) If you are willing to contribute to this one-time expense, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll tell you the easy way to contribute. You can also help by bringing new writers to this website. Act – and help me keep building this house of words.

Freedom is as Freedom does
Does Freedom have the right to destroy so many habitats and take so many lives?
The more I care for my body the more freedom I have truly. There lies a natural balance but with Freedom comes Responsibility.
And yeah we’ve got a lot. But do we need some humility?
And other values rarely taught? Where is our humanity?
Our humaneness, benevolence. And who gets define all of these words? Where is our basic common sense?
It’s time to redefine priorities besides National Defense.
In a capitalist economy it can all be bought and sold but what is more important than the economy?
Can we eat silver or drink our gold?
And now the time comes to define what Freedom means to me. My family and I are safe and sound and I have Freedom of speech. Freedom is something I want for all regardless of nationality an ideal but will it ever be balanced with accountability?
I have to say that Freedom is like all things relative. But in a capitalist economy where all is a commodity, even Freedom is. Freedom is
