What does Freedom mean to me?

From the Discovery the Underground Railroad Junior Ranger Activity book:

We have been looking at the Underground Railroad and slavery in America. Today give me a paragraph about what Freedom means to you. Are you free? What makes you free? Why is freedom so important to human beings. PastedGraphic-2PastedGraphic-1

    Freedom means to me being able to do things without someone telling you to. I think i am free. I am free because my family gets to vote, and the declaration of -> INDEPENDENCE <- was signed. Freedom is so important to humans because if everybody was a slave, and somebody tells somebody else to do something dangerous, they can get injured ( mind you that if you're a slave, you have no choice but to listen to your master. Thats what i think about freedom.

  2. I think freedom is important because when you feel like you are a somebody when you have freedom, but when you do not have freedom you feel like you are nobody and you are not important to the world. I feel that I am free and I am not free, I feel not free because my mom tells me what to do and I feel free because I can do almost anything I want with in reason.

  5. Freedom is important to me because i need to play and have some fun and play my Game.
    Also so i can go to the mall and buy things with out being a slave and or being poor. I think if you are very poor you cannot really free.

    Freedom is very important for everyone . People should always have to choice to not do things that can harm them , or things that they do not want to do. All people are equal to eachother no matter where they are born or families are from . Freedom means you can be yourself, and do things that you want to do.
