Lesson for the Day: A human being possesses the inner capacity of free-will and, therefore, can choose, when his or her life is going in the wrong direction, to change for the better.
“[O]ur assertion of human existence as a self-creating act corresponds to the basic assumption that man does not simply ‘be,’ but always decides what he will be in the next moment. At each moment the human person is steadily molding and forging his own character. Thus, every human being has a chance of changing at any instant. There is the freedom to change.”
