    What Is Freedom?
    This is what it means to me.

    Freedom, means a lot of different things to everybody. Because I live in the United States of America. There are so many freedoms I take for granted. Probably don’t appreciate it until we lose it.

    Every generation has to defend, and preserve our freedoms, so we can enjoy. It's what we pass on to the generations that follow. In America, we have the privilege of changing the direction our nation is going, every election. There are some safeguards placed by our founding fathers. They gave us the things this nation needs to become the greatest nation history has ever recorded.

    Because we have a constitution, and a bill of rights. That is our foundation. We can elect our government, change it to our way of thinking. However we have a supreme court that interprets the constitution. This one thing is what is the base of keeping our freedoms. We are a nation of laws, and that gives us our freedoms. As long as we are a law abiding citizen we have our guaranteed freedoms.

    In 1941 President Franklin Rosevelt gave to congress in the state of the union address what has become known as the four freedoms speech. They were the freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear. In a later post I’ll talk more about these freedoms.

    In 1961 President John Kennedy gave a speech in his inaugural address that said. “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”! He knew all too well the price of freedom, and no doubt he inspired many young people to give their lives defending our precious freedoms.

    Time, and money freedom

    Are you still wanting to make a life changing income?
    Perhaps you, are still looking for the right opportunity.
    What if in a year from now, you were earning. Two, three,
    four, or even six thousand a month. Would that make a difference?

    I’m looking for six people, that want a real life changing
    experience. If you have what it takes, and are teachable
    you are who we are looking for.

    What is happening to our world

    In a mater of just a few months. The whole world has been affected. Because of the virus, Many are left homebound, unemployed, or sick. Our lives will be forever changed. What we took for normal, is not anymore. Many will find new jobs, and a whole new way of working. For those looking for a way to survive, and pay the bills. Perhaps the internet will be the way they choose. We will survive, become stronger, and make a better lifestyle for ourselves, and family.

    Freedom of worship

    In America, we have the freedom of worship. we can worship any GOD we choose, or choose to not worship any at all. We are not forced to chose any certain faith. This is a very precious freedom, and should not be taken lightly.

    Freedom Of Speech

    It's important to have this freedom. With it we can freely express our views on any topic we chose. We can write about anything, we are interested in. Tell the world our feelings, likes and dislikes. In many parts of the world they do not enjoy such a freedom. Many have been put in prison for expressing they're views on certain topics.
