1 the quality or state of being free
2 the absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action
Freedom- so often taken for granted until it is lost. Some have never and will never in their lives know the feeling of being free. Regardless of belief, the constitution grants the citizens of the USA the inalienable right to be free. Yet with that somehow has come a sense of entitlement, a feeling of superiority or inclination to press your views upon others. Which paradoxically is the antithesis of freedom. Not in everyone does this trait exist, however the ones who do possess this seem unable or unwilling to grant another the same freedom of thought that they so doggedly defend. The next time we are tempted to try and impose our beliefs on another, stop and grant that person what the constitution does- the Right to be free- whether or not anyone agrees with you or not.
