Would you go along with that person, or would you be the one to stand above the crowd and say, "I care about freedom, because of freedom, we can do what we want each day living freely, with no worries." Think about it.
Would you go along with that person, or would you be the one to stand above the crowd and say, "I care about freedom, because of freedom, we can do what we want each day living freely, with no worries." Think about it.Freedom is a very special gift in our country that not many countries have. Thanks to all the veterans and troops who made the ultimate sacrifice. Gallant's 6th grade class What did we fight for in Korea? What is worth the lives and limbs lost in these wars? Berg's 5th grade class "We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of h...
What makes the USA different from other nations, so appealing to people of other lands that they come by the millions?
Why do we choose how to live unlike other countries? Freedom is the ability to make choices and to carry them out, as long as they show no unjust, unnecessary or unreasonable limits of others' freedom.
They thought freedom was worth fighting and dying for.
I think of all the wars our country has fought, and still is fighting, so we can have the wonderful gift of freedom.
Our veterans have fought to keep our country free and we should all be thankful for that.
I am glad that we honor our veterans and I am proud to be an American! Finn's 5th grade class What does freedom mean to me? Sea's 5th grade class What freedom means to me is not being judged by what I do and what I say.Freedom is something many, many people take for granted, even me. It means that I can do what I want in my country because veterans fought for my freedom and independence in the Revolu-tionary War. We can choose where we want to learn our own religion.We can express our feelings and not get in trouble for it.There have been many brave women and men who have risked their lives so we can live the way we want to in the United States.We still have women and men fighting for our freedom today.A person's race, gender or physical limitations don't matter because we are all equal, so we receive the same amount of freedom.Sometimes we take freedom for granted, and don't think of all the little things that we get to enjoy because we are free.Freedom means to have the right to do and say what you like. Pope John Paul II said that "Every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom consists not in doing what we like, but having the right to do what we ought." I think freedom is an amazing thing because at 11 years old, I'm able to have an education, learn to play the French horn, and learn how to sing in a choir. Their courage allows me to think of things I'd like to do, like care for my lambs, cats, dogs, read or draw. Also I would like to say thanks to the veterans that fought for my freedom.Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, we have police, doctors, firemen and women to help us when we need it. To me, having freedom is enough to make me happy because a lot of people in other countries don't have the freedom we take for granted.I think if people realized how lucky they are they would have more respect for the veterans and more support for them.So think for a moment, are you unlucky or are you just feeling bad for yourself, think about the kids and adults who don't have freedom.
