What freedom means to me by Susanna Sumpter

Freedom means having choices. It means choosing my own country, my own identity, and not having to conform.

Freedom means a life without imprisonment.

Freedom means Uncle Sam and Old Glory, loyalty and something worth fighting for if necessary.

Freedom is the Unknown Soldier. It is a refuge fleeing from behind the Iron Curtain. It is the battlegrounds where men have died and the playgrounds where children laugh and play.

Freedom is a person’s inner self. We have freedom, only if we are at peace within.

Freedom is laughter and it is tears. It is sorrow as well as joy.

Freedom is believing in God, but it is also the right to be an atheist.

Freedom is what you want it to mean and it is not the same to any two people.

What freedom means to me by Randy Bentley

Freedom embodies uninhibited ventures of my own choosing. Besides my private duties to help keep this an orderly society, I am free from further responsibility.

Our form of government is the best system letting people be free though not totally uncontrolled. The basic democratic principles are hindered by crooked politicians and biased laws, however.
