Fear of freedom

This is very understandable. Freedom is more frightening. And when the young eagle leaves the sheltered chicken yard, he has nearly to be forced... like us. I understand the former slaves. And I understand their happiness after Hashem nearly "carried" them into freedom. Wonderful and clear explanation for us. Thankyou.
