Dear Editor,

We have heard the word Freedom a lot recently in different contexts.

The other day I was watching my bird feeders with lots of feathered diners, when my mind drifted to the word Freedom.

My wishes for the world are: Freedom from climate change, Freedom from poverty, Freedom from hunger, Freedom from racism, Freedom from war, Freedom from violence, Freedom from homelessness, Freedom from hate, Freedom from ignorance, Freedom from loneliness.

The list can go on. 

At the top of my thoughts would be FREEDOM FOR UKRAINE.
