Freedom is defined as:the right to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic (tyrannical) government.Unrestricted use of something.The power to do what you want.
The state of not being a slave, prisoner, etc.
I'm thankful that I live in America (at least most of the time...lol). I'm thankful for those who have given so much of their lives to give us the freedoms we have known.
We will be visiting friends for the afternoon. I'm not sure about fireworks because we are VERY dry here in Washington and Oregon right now.
"Freedom in any case, is only possible by constantly struggling for it" Albert Einstein
"Freedom is being you without anyones permission" Anonymous
YES! I love that. Sometimes though, we are held captive by other peoples opinions of us. We aren't being true to ourselves.
"Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes". Mahatma Gandhi
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves" Abraham Lincoln
It saddens me that we cannot seem to have our differences of thoughts, opinions, beliefs, etc..and somehow work together to find common ways to work through problems, or issues, to come to agreement on some things. It doesn't seem to matter...your idea might actually sound great, but because you are this or that, I won't even entertain the idea. How sad is that. I'm sure the above quote is debatable, but I think it's true. I think that unless we can find ways to work together, we will destroy ourselves through hatred, separation and who knows what else.
