ABOUT: Today's Pursuit of Happiness
Leonard Ajkun's America is always on the move. The dream drives free people from the Pacific to the Atlantic, it provides hope for the hindered, and it strengthens the hearts of the ones contending with adversity. Finding the perfect and delicate balance between freedom “to” and freedom “from” involves pacing the roads of life that, in return, uncage forceful emotions.
