"We believe that freedom is a gift from God and not a political grant
from government. Freedom neither license nor anarchy. It is self-
control. No more and no less. It must be consistent with the truths
expressed in such great moral guides as the Ten Commandments, the
Golden Rule and the Declaration of Independence." As you may have
guessed I didn't write this opinion. But, I do agree with R.C. Holies'
principles presented in this magnificent quote. As I was reading this, it
made me realize how much the people around me, and myself, take our
freedom for granted. I believe that when people think about freedom,
they think of freedom as just a word. Most people don't realize that the
word used to mean that you could not be owned and could do as you
please. Today in America people are automatically free and
don't have to work to earn it.
Freedom gives me the right to play
hockey, baseball ,or any sport I want. I can also get the education I want
at almost any school I want for free. When the colonists were trying to
break free from England, they would have done anything to secure that
new freedom. I know that if anybody ever tried to take my freedom
away, I would do anything to get it back. Soldiers fight every day so I
can keep my freedom, and for the freedom of others, and that means a
lot. I have always wanted to be in the service, and will possibly be able
to fight to keep Americas freedom-just like soldiers do for us today. My
freedom means a lot to me and will mean more to me as I get older and
earn more rights. I still think many people will think of freedom...
