What a country we live in, the land of the free and home of the brave!
Right now we are in a time of turmoil, there is no doubt about that. We are all being tested in every way possible. Our patience, morals even our health is being put to the test. However, I know in this time of uncertainty, we will get through this and come out stronger on the other side.
That is what we do, we are Americans.
So, I wanted to understand what freedom meant to all the well armed women out there. We asked them through a number of platforms,
“What does freedom mean to you”?
Your answers were incredibly inspiring.
You continue to remind me just how big, how far-reaching, and how important our freedom is.
As you will see, freedom means so many different things to each of us. So, I put together a word cloud with the words YOU used to help visualize the common ideals. The larger the word is, the more frequently it was used.
Below I’m sharing a few of the excerpts from our followers. What we each believe freedom means, they are all very personal. Everyone should take the time to dig deep and find out “what does freedom mean to you?” What does living in America mean to you and what makes you proud to live here?
Perhaps this will help ground you and remind you what truly is important during these unstable times.
Though we are all different and may see things with different lenses – we are all unified by the fact that we are Free.
The ability to think and act responsibly without having to get permission or be denied…
Having my own opinion, being unique, my life taking me to new paths I would never have imagined, choices, learning from my mistakes, failures to successes, heartbreaks to happiness
Freedom is the strength to do the right thing for our families and our fellow citizens.
Freedom means believing as I want and speaking my opinion openly without fear. . Moving about the country as I please. Working where I want. Worshiping where I want. Yes there are laws but basically you are free to do as you want.
Freedom means being able to voice my beliefs anywhere I go, to love and worship God freely, to elect government with similar beliefs and values as mine, and to be able to share the love I have for my family outwardly in public places like stores, restaurants and parks without fear of a police state—and the rights of the second amendment.
Accountability, government transparency, to lead a life where I’m not forced to believe what others do, and to have privacy in my homelife.
Life liberty and pursuit of happiness. Thank you Soldiers and thank you Jesus!
It is ever present in my heart and mind that our Freedoms have been paid for by the lives and sacrifices of Patriots, and it would be a travesty to relinquish them so readily for a false sense of security!
Freedom is the right to do what brings me fulfillment as long as it doesn’t infringe on another person’s right to the same. If you’re busy loving your life, you won’t have time nor desire to worry about what someone else is doing.
Endless possibilities, worshiping freely, speaking passionately about
a n y t h i n g and immense pride in our colorful history.
Freedom means America, where all opinions are okay and the government doesn’t tell us how to live, what to say and how much or little we can make. Freedom is living by the Air Force base and hearing the jets fly overhead practicing. And freedom is getting tearful at the National Anthem because you love your life and appreciate those who gave you that freedom. 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲 GOD BLESS AMERICA!
