Freedom is worth fighting for when terrorists crash planes into two important buildings in our world. Freedom is worth fighting for when Japanese bomb your ships, declaring war. When someone threatens our freedom, we fight back.
Freedom is worth fighting for when you want it. Freedom is worth sailing across the ocean, having half your passengers die during the first winter in a new land. When you want freedom you have to pay the price.
Freedom is something that not just everybody has automatically. Afghanistan for instance, has an oppressive government. They don't have the freedom of religion. The women can't even show their faces.
We are very blessed to have freedom. I enjoy my freedom of religion, such as going to church. I also enjoy freedom of speech and how we can voice our opinions.
We want our freedom. We'll fight for our freedom because not just everybody gets it. I am thankful for freedom.
