Freedom is not something we can purchase,
nor give without willing receipt.
It is not found in wealth, nor time,
nor in the place in which we live.
Freedom is not the opportunity
to do whatever we desire.
It’s the way we move.
It’s the way we think.
Freedom is is not something found
in the casualties of war,
for it resides in the heart and mind
of those who choose to see.
Freedom is found in the brave,
the old, the youth, and the meek.
Freedom is found in you and me.
