Today's youth believe that freedom is free, but that statement is false. Why? Because our ancestors have fought for our freedom and our safety. Just look at the Civil War, half a million people died in a fight for African-American freedom. Look at WW2, the world was decimated in an attempt to stop Hitler from killing millions of innocent people. Freedom is not free people. If you think other wise people will soon be able to take it away from you and then you will have nothing to live for.
As a fellow "no" voter has already stated, youth nowadays are lost thinking that the freedom they got was free. The freedom they got was not free at all, and it was paid for by something a lot more important than money: lives. They have gotten freedom through several roots: they got the root of freedom, independence, from the revolutionary war. They got the root of freedom, equality, from the civil war. They got the root of freedom, peace, from both world wars. They got the root of freedom, security, from the cold war. Finally, it is hoped that out of this current war on terrorism, we will gain the root of more security and the happiness of spreading democracy and freedom hroughout the countries that need it.
