What does freedom mean?

To be free. I found this whilst searching for “freedom”… The Battle Cry Of Freedom (Southern Version) by Anonymous Americas

“Our flag is proudly floating
On the land and on the main,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
Beneath it oft we’ve conquered,
And we’ll conquer oft again!
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

CHORUS: Our Dixie forever!
She’s never at a loss!
Down with the eagle
And up with the cross!
We’ll rally ’round the bonny flag,
We’ll rally once again,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

Our gallant boys have marched
To the rolling of the drums,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
And the leaders in charge cry out,
“Come, boys, come!”
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!—CHORUS

They have laid down their lives
On the bloody battle field,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
Their motto is resistance —
“To tyrants we’ll not yield!”
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!—CHORUS

While our boys have responded
And to the fields have gone,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
Our noble women also
Have aided them at home,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!—CHORUS”

Each person has their own idea of freedom, so if you’re across the pond in the U.S.A. during this 4th of July weekend have a think what *your* idea of freedom is.

Mine? To be free of the negativity, the hate, the bullies… that’s freedom to me. I think of my prison pals also, freedom to them is anything outside of the four walls they find themselves confined in. Just read the poem “Inhale, Exhale” as published on my blog yesterday by Tommy in CA.
