To Me

Knowing that you are safe to be yourself is the true meaning of freedom.

What It Was Once Like

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

-Ronald Reagan

40th president of US (1911 – 2004)

Let Me Free

My bruises heal. As do my cuts and bones. Externally I look fine. Internally, is an entire different story. You think your words don’t hurt. You think what you say doesn’t have any effect. You don’t know you’re wrong. Everyday is the same with you. The words. The ridicule. The teasing. But what you say doesn’t hurt. What I believe hurts. The stupid thing is I allow your words to penetrate my soul. I allow your words to hurt me by choosing to believe them. I don’t want to live like this. By natural right I am free. And I choose to let myself free. Free from your influence, your grasp. I am free, free at last.

Free Vote

If you refuse to vote, you’re asking the government not to represent your individual freedom. What’s life without freedom?
