Four Freedoms

Famous "Four Freedoms" poster by Norman Rockwell that was widely circulated during World War II: Franklin D. Roosevelt gave a memorable speech on this day. In 1941, he reminded everyone about the four freedoms everyone should be allowed to have. All of them are freedoms that are taken for granted on a daily basis. Several countries do not have these freedoms because of the laws of their countries. Freedom of worship, freedom from want, freedom from fear, and freedom of speech are the freedoms that he heavily expresses in his speech.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was the 32nd President and was in office March 4, 1933-April 12, 1945.: Everyone has a right to let their voice be heard. Everyone has the right to worship the way they want regardless of creed. No one deserves to live in fear or suffer from want. Franklin D. Roosevelt reminded us of those four freedoms that Americans are lucky to have today. Yet, even seventy-five years later several people around the world do not have the four freedoms due to their countries law.
