  1. Rosemary Says:

    Freedom of speech!

  2. Terry Johnson Says:

    The freedom to worship as I choose.

  3. Peggy Says:

    The freedom to worship when and where I desire is the freedom that I most cherish. Other freedoms that I appreciate are having a choice of government leaders, choice of foods and the money to purchase them, choice of how much education I obtain, and control over my own body.

  4. Robert Glover Says:

    Beyond Religious Freedom, the freedom to make my own choices in life ranks high with me.

    With that said I fear that this freedom is being nibbled away.

  5. Betsy Says:

    The freedom to worship at a local church and the freedom to eat wherever I want to and use the money however I want to.

  6. Jean Says:

    The freedom to practice my religion anywhere

  7. Peg Says:

    The freedom to travel freely throughout our country is a blessing. Visiting family, vacationing and even getting to local medical care is a challenge in many countries. We take it for granted.

  8. Helen Says:

    Freedom of expression, of worship. Of being able to roam and travel without worrying about encountering violence.

  9. Dorothy A. Pedtke Sr Says:

    Watching this mess over the debt limit crisis, I am writing zillions of letters to Congress to express what I think should be happening, and why. I think this is a freedom a lot of nations don’t have. I really feel that my government listens to what I think. Of course the power of the rich is a lot greater than the power of my statements, but I feel that I can make some dent in what my government does, and that my government accepts that I have the right to say what I think about what they’re doing and that they are required to at least listen to my ideas and take them into consideration when voting. All our other rights depend to a large extent on this freedom.
