WHAT DOES FREEDOM MEAN TO ME?
Freedom for me is the ability to be yourself, to do what you want to do, to say what you want to.
A great example is the reason why I am writing this article. When a city, a town or a country gets taken over, the things you can do are limited… You have to live like a person from the enemy’s country. They try to make you different.
That’s exactly why freedom is so important! Imagine speaking a different language. There would no longer be Lithuania or wherever you live. That makes you a different person! That isn’t fair! Because you weren’t asking anyone for a “makeover”, you didn’t want anything to change!
Freedom lets you live, experience things YOUR way, not the way someone wants you to. And technically you are still you, but you actually belong to someone.
Something like this expression:
Vilnius is ours, but we are Russia‘s .
I guess what I am trying to say is that freedom is us. There wouldn‘t be us if there weren‘t freedom.
So again, what DOES freedom mean to me?
MYSELF, freedom to me means me. Like a math equation…
Freedom = me.
That’s me, my achievements, my possibilities, my life.
Which would be the explanation to this whole article… Freedom. Equals. Me.
