What is liberty for me?
What would you do if someone asks you to write a paragraph about freedom, liberty? Normally people would search some info on the internet about, what’s freedom? Wikipedia.com says that liberty is a free will as a contrast with determinism. But what would you say to a 3rd grader?
I’d choose to tell him about the history of Lithuania. When we weren’t free, when others wanted our land, we couldn’t say our opinion, it was forbidden to speak Lithuanian… What if you had to wait in queues for 3 hours, just to buy some bananas? What if you walk into a store and the shelves are empty. Not because the stuff was sold out, because food was never there. Compare that to these days… We can have what we want, whenever we want.
Don’t forget the days before liberty. Be happy you don’t belong to somebody else, but yourself.
