What freedom means to me
By Katie Tucker
Hi, my name is Katie Tucker, and I am going to tell you what freedom means to me. Also in this paper Im going to write how our lives would be different without freedom. I want to start out with what freedom means to me.
Freedom is important. It means getting to do what you want to do, making your own choices. It means that you can live where you want to live and go to church where you want. You do not have to ask anyone for permission to do these things when you have freedom. Freedom means being able to read whatever books you want to, and watch what you want to on television. Mostly, when you are free, it means that you can have your own opinion and that you can share that opinion with other people even if they dont agree with you. For these reasons, and a whole lot more, freedom is a very important thing to have in your life.
Our lives would be different without freedom. I think it would probably be terrible without freedom. I couldnt even picture the world without it. It would seem as if we were prisoners in a jail if other people told us where to live, what to read or what to believe. And I cant imagine not being able to share my opinions without being afraid of what might happen. I think that a world without freedom would be a lonely place.
Most of our lives depend on freedom. There have been times when people have even thought that freedom is important enough to fight a war for. Also, if we didnt have freedom some of my friends would be slaves. To me, and most of my friends, that would be terrible.
Another thing that we wouldnt have without freedom is school. I wouldnt mind that so much, but I would miss my friends a lot. It is good that we have the freedom to learn. Another thing that we probably wouldnt have is afternoon or after-school activities. There are many things that you wouldnt be able to do if you didnt have freedom. It is scary to think how different life would be without the things that being free promises us.
Sometimes we take freedom for granted and dont think of all the little things that we get to enjoy because we are free. When you stop and think about how different life would be without it, it makes you very thankful to live here and enjoy the promise of freedom.
