Freedom to me means that I don’t have to question “Am I free?”

Freedom for me is being able to go outside and not worry about a police officer abusing his or her power.

Freedom for me is not seeing stories of people rejected for their hairstyle, sexual orientation, or gender.

Freedom to me is not being afraid of voicing an opinion without a social justice warrior criticizing me for it.

Freedom to me is being able to confidently say I AM FREE!
