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? 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.

    Freedom is important. It means getting to do what you want to and, making your own choices. It means that you can live where you want to live and go to church where you want. You do not have to ask anyone for permission for doing all that stuff when you have several options. Freedom means being able to read any books and watch any TV programme you want. Mostly, when you are free, it means that you can have your own opinion and share that it with other people even if they don’t agree with you. For these reasons, and a whole lot more, freedom is a crucial thing in your life.
    Our lives would be different and much more boring without freedom. I guess it would be even terrible to feel lack of freedom. I couldn’t even picture the world without it. It would seem as if we were prisoners in a jail and other people told us where to live, what to read or when to believe. Thus, I can not imagine being unable to share my opinion what might happen or what to expect. I think that a world without freedom would be a lonely and devastated place.

    What does freedom mean to me?
    Freedom is to take road you love, breathe the air of your homeland without anyone stopping you. when you have the freedom to make decisions, when you are independent of anyone and to live a wonderful life with your relatives.
    I feel the freedom when i’m running in track, then I feel elusive and nobody’s uninhibited. And when I crossed the finish line, I took a deep breath and no one can prevent me.
    Also I feel freedom, when I can hug my family members and say those three beautiful words “I love You”. I feel it when I can have fun with my friends or relatives, when I can make decisions by my own, when I have opportunity to choose and no one hasn’t the right to do it for me.
    I want it to remain forever. I want, that all people have the opportunity to live in freedom. Forever.
