“Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says have been given to all humans by their creator, and which governments are created to protect.
Inherent within the Declaration of Independence is the notion of freedom. Freedom as defined by Webster’s Dictionary is: the power or right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint. We, at the Impossible Roads Foundation, daily fight for those freedoms. We fight for life that is unencumbered by hunger, extreme poverty, homelessness, displacement, and sorrow. And although nobody can prevent or eliminate such hindrances so abundant on our existence here on earth; it is our mission to walk alongside our neighbors in the seemingly impossible trenches that life throws at you and give you provision, light, and levity.
For Sandra, a Veteran it means having a warm home to live, For Kyu, a fisherman, it means being able to put food on the table everyday for his family. And for all those unnamed that we see, it means surviving during this time of pandemic and great uncertainty.
As we go forward in our day during this pandemic, season of economic volatility, and time of social unrest, know that you have a friend and ally in the Impossible Roads Foundation.
