I have been thinking all day long on independence and freedom and how America is so lucky to be free. We have freedom of speech, freedom of religion, independence, etc… Just the idea of losing the freedom of anything/everything would crush all of us Americans and those who understand and are behind our freedom in the United States. Look at the countries – the people – who don’t like our freedoms in this country. We are united over here, but we are not all united in this world as far as countries go. The fact of losing the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and most of all independence are three big issues in my life and those who are in my life. I am not one much for politics because of the controversy that politics raise in this wold although I have no conrol of what goes on in the political world. For the next several days, until the end of this semester, I am going to sit here thinking about how fortunate I am to have the freedoms I do have along with other Americans who feel the same way I do. Even though I am not very political myself as far as running for President or some other political office, I do listen and I do have feelings just like other people. The only feelings I need to yet master is the feeling of hate – those people in other countries hating our America so much because of the freedoms we have that they don’t have.
