Our partners in Pakistan recently shared this story: Hira is a young, divorced woman who suffers from polio which affects her ability to fully use her right hand….

Freedom is an interesting subject in our world. It’s an elusive and often complicated term defined by our culture, our perspective and our Earthly laws.
