Writing 101 Day 5: Freedom

Freedom

What is Freedom?

How do we get freedom?

In school

I was told

Freedom isn’t free

How do we get freedom?

Why is freedom not free?

The word free

is in freedom

Yet, in order to achieve

Freedom

A sacrifice is made

People go to war

To fight for

Their country

To make sure the ones

Safe at home

Are able to enjoy freedom

Freedom is something

That is taken for granted

All to often

There are other countries

That don’t have as much freedom

As I do

Freedom is fought for

Freedom is taken for granted

All to often

    I was just thinking of all the young men who went to the war in Vietnam, many died, more came back scarred for life, physically and mentally. I ache for all of those who are fighting now. Yes, many, if not most, are proud to be there, but their sacrifice is lifelong, regardless of how long that life will be. I hope we do a better job of caring for our veterans in the future.
