Do we have a choice? Do we have a free choice?
In my opinion it takes courage/bravery to choose morally despite the challenges.
Some people are hero and forever legacy. They even risked their lives for the sake of saving others.
As Viktor Frankl said: “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”
“Freedom is in danger of degenerating into mere arbitrariness unless it is lived in terms of responsibleness.”
Since responsibility is how you chose to respond, (you chose your attitude):
So, yes you have a free choice!
So, yes chose responsibly!
