The Thank You Project: #176 (Having Freedoms)
Sorry this post is a day late but I thought it was important to write a short thank you around the 4th of July and why it’s so important for us to remember what we have. Every year we celebrate the 4th of July and think about the many people that sacrificed their lives in order to keep our freedoms. These include the freedom of speech, press, right to bear arms and many more. There are many countries in our world that don’t have the basic freedoms that we do. However, every year we continue to have these freedoms and it’s what makes our country great.
These freedoms allow us to go on with our daily lives and be the inspiration for others. Think about it, the freedom of speech allows us to express ourselves for who we are. There are so many of us here in the US and we all have a different story and it’s great that we can tell ours.
To me the 4th of July is just a reminder of all that we have. We fought hard to get the freedom that we deserve and we fight hard everyday to try to ensure other people gain their freedom. To me that’s a great thing and for that I will forever be thankful for having freedoms!
