Freedom is a much desired ideal. The founders of the United States went to war, only to be able to achieve something that our country now takes for granted. Although freedom seems like a right, it is still a privilege to many people around the world. We have had to earn it. Our ancestors fought in the American Revolutionary War against the British in order to achieve the right to worship when they wanted to, what they wanted to, and how they wanted to; otherwise known as freedom of religion. The United States Declaration of Independence declares that "all men are created equal ...with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." And, yet, our country was divided years after the Declaration of Independence was written in the U.S. Civil War in order to free the slaves. So, what is freedom? What is liberty? What is justice?
