If we didn't have these freedoms, what do you think America would be like?
What if we didn't have courageous people to fight for us like in World Wars I and II?
Every night we would lay awake, wondering if this would be our last night. We have troops fighting for us at this very moment in Iraq.
If someone said, "Who cares about freedom," what would you say?
Would you go along with that person, or would you be the one to stand above the crowd and say, "I care about freedom, because of freedom, we can do what we want each day living freely, with no worries." Think about it.
Freedom is a very special gift in our country that not many countries have. Thanks to all the veterans and troops who made the ultimate sacrifice. Gallant's 6th grade class What did we fight for in Korea? What is worth the lives and limbs lost in these wars?What makes the USA different from other nations, so appealing to people of other lands that they come by the millions?Why do we choose how to live unlike other countries? Freedom is the ability to make choices and to carry them out, as long as they show no unjust, unnecessary or unreasonable limits of others' freedom. Actually my mother went home soon after for she knew I would be all right. I did not cry because I had been to kindergarten before.Probably half of our population would be wiped out.That means many families would be afraid to leave their homes in case they got hurt or even killed.So support the veterans who have risked their lives and fought for your freedom every day. Ferris's 6th grade class To me, freedom means the right to choose. I can decide what I want to be when I grow up or where I might want to live.If all of those brave men and women hadn't fought for us in war, who knows where America would be today. That's why we should thank all the brave men and women who've risked their lives and lost their lives, because without them, freedom would only be a dream for us, too, and not the reality it is today. Because of you, I have freedom, my family has freedom, and the country has freedom. Friedrich's 6th grade class Do you know what freedom means to me?They thought freedom was worth fighting and dying for.I think of all the wars our country has fought, and still is fighting, so we can have the wonderful gift of freedom.
