well, having both grandfathers being in WWII i feel that this holiday is a very sobering reminder on how easy it is to forget about the simple things such as freedom and other things that some countries dont have!

For example, in Saudi Arabia women cant show their face in public and cant go out in public AT ALL without being escorted by a man!

there are other things that also can do here in the great USA that we cant do in other countries!

So that being said, think really hard and list one or two freedoms that you truly enjoy that you usually dont think twice about?

My two would be...

Playing video games and being able to speak my mind without fear of being arrested for simple statements.

The freedom to practice religious freedom & the freedom to choose your lifemate and not be forced into a union(arranged marriages).

God bless~
I like the freedom of and from religion. I also like that I can have free speech as long as the speech doesn't promote the genocide of a group. (hate speech)

well, thats good, but think about all our other freedoms that we have. this is the best country in the world to live in even though our economy is in the s**t hole. the USA has always pulled through no matter what challenge! so we can recover from the bad economy and we have a proud county. with probably more freedoms than almost anywhere else in this world!

I go by a day to day basis, so it's not that great overall. Just being realistic.

As a woman, two freedoms I appreciate are the ability to own & control money and property by myself, and the ability to hire my own attorney as needed.

As a veteran, I have worked to keep our country strong and to protect many freedoms.
Good thread.

And I think Fourth of July also echoes that sentiment.
