Hi!!

At my school there is a creative writing competition with the theme 'Freedom'. It can be a poem or short story. But all I can think of is a large field. So what comes to your mind. I'll post if I fancy using your idea to help me. Don't want stories and poems. Just like for me a reply to this thread would be:

A large open field, birds singing and a slight breeze.

Thanks ahead. I know I can rely on you people.!!!! :rockon::rockon::rockon:

LOL. I also thought of William Wallace. I also think of bad clichés that I won't mention. Hm... If you're going for something more serious, you could do some research on other countries where people don't have as much freedom. I know that women in some countries still can't vote. Or you could look on America's past and write a poem about slaves gaining freedom.

I think about all the people mis-fortunate enough to not have the freedom to chose like I do. Also, all the lives that have been lost over the centuries to establish, and keep the freedom that we all deserve.

And: from "The US Declaration of Independence"

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

For a second I was going to say, "wow SH, that was really good!" Then I re-read it and saw "from The US Declaration of Independence".

When I hear the word 'freedom' I think of:

Riding a horse bareback through an open field.

Mentally and physically disabled kids who do horseback riding therapy. They feel free when they are on a horse, the horse moves/thinks for them. For a while they are free of wheelchairs, hospital visits and all of the stress.
