This is How a tenth Grade american Schoolboy looks at the rights and responsibilities of citizenship Freedom has a different meaning to different people. In India people would be thankful for Freedom from hunger in Russia Freedom from oppression. The american usage of Freedom Means the Freedom of a person to think for himself and to come to the truth by mind and conscience. Freedom As we have it does not mean Freedom from want or from work. It simply Means the right to work for ourselves the right to express our own individual personalities to direct our own lives and to choose whatever religion we w ant. It is the Freedom defined by the american Constitution. We Are free to have our own opinions. The opinions of others Are not forced upon us no matter if they be of a Church of the government or of our fellow citizens. We As americans must work together to preserve the heritage of Freedom which was bestowed upon this country by our forefathers. In this hour of crisis and unrest we need a renewed understanding of the True principles on which our country was started. We also must recognize god As the supreme architect Trust in his Wisdom and guidance and Pray that this country a leaders will dedicate themselves to the preservation of americans Freedom. Strangers to the american traditions find this Asj sect of our historical belief in Freedom difficult if not impossible to accept. Their inclination is to interpret Freedom As meaning the privilege to think right thoughts and by enlargement to think As their friends think their party Church Union professional associations or whatever the situation May be. Everybody else to think As the majority in the country thinks and to teach what the dominant political or religious opinion wants taught. Thei e Are some of course who deliberately reject the american meaning. This group would destroy it if they could and replace it with an interpretation More amenable to their own beliefs. At present this group is not too numerous. The real danger to Freedom in the United states is the. Danger of the impairment of the american usage by negligence and default. If we do not agree among that by Freedom we mean precisely Freedom we May end by finding ourselves a a free in the sense in which the russians now find Liberty is endangered by the honest efforts of its own defenders. Against such danger there is no better safeguard than the alertness of a free people who recognize that the right of a person to swing his fist ends where his neighbors nose begins. Democratic education Means to live and let live to learn and let learn to love and let love and even hate and let hate As Long As the Basic rights of men in general Are not violated. We As americans certainly Are proud of our Christian heritage and of possessing our a four As heirs of a great legacy the watchwords of All americans should be a let Freedom Hershey news comm. Big.
