Probably we think we know what freedom really is, but not really, for as we stand here today we have taken it for granted
and it definitely is something we earn.
Now for me I realize it really started when I first voted, that is the biggest freedom we all have, again we take it for
granted, we do not research the people or the bills put before us to vote upon.
Voting for a personality will get you what you do not want, voting for a person whom you really know is telling the
truth, and how many of us do that, we will believe anything as long as we know we will gain something from it.
So you see we are no better than those using us and they know how to get into our thoughts, just by manipulating and
using the phrase believe me, ha! Took me forever to get that one, but I have and I see and I know when they are
lying and it is most of the time. Do your research before you speak.
Have learned much in retirement, especially hw aware I am when I take my daily walk, the people I see and the
people I talk too., Everybody has a story of sorts to tell. Keep listening.
Remembering when I was in school and all items of life we were taught, it was very interesting and my favorite wa history,
ancient all the way up to the mondern times, it truly makes me grateful that I had the rivilidge of going to school when they
really taught us something, there was no way you were going o get out of school without a great education in all the classes.
As I said history was my favorite, but I did love mathematics for it was something I know I needed to learn for future
use if I were going to get a job that paid well nd allowed me to excell and this all started in he first grade.
From then on it was a very interesting part of my life that am really grateful for, it is also important to have good
teachaers that really have a desire to teach young minds in the criteria they theselvs know.
Also school to the young person with a learning mind and a disire to do so will definitely use all the tools at hand.
Loved the libraries that were always most of the time in every city or township in the country and I fond them, it was
like candyland, so much to read and absorb and use, i was a library nerd for sure.
Grammar school where we were taught the basics of most of the curriculumn and as each year passed a little more knowledge
was there for us to learn and use.
High school had a bit more added into thir curriculmn and it was definitely up to us to assume responsibility i the learning
process, those days most of us did to the best of our own personal responsibility.
A very grateful person I had that all at the time to use for my betterment.
Now today and I see the kids doing absolutly nothing and it is sad, such a waste of young ;minds, ih no it certainly
is not all for there are many who actually take advantage of all learning facilities as best as tey can considering
our life as it once was is detiorating into a morass of people whom expect others to take care of them and cater to their
wishes, sure wasn't when I grw up. Remember my parents telling me that it wa important to find agreat job that paid
good wages so I could actually be self sufficient, not relying on others to help me out of scrapes but to pull my self up
by my own bootstraps, so to say. It is so true.
This is where the real learning comes in aftr high school and until we are ready to further our education.
To be set up to be able to take any job and just use it a anther learning tool experiencing and mving forward with the
new knowledge we are learning and tgat us kufem tgats ut,
When you can look over your life and really know that you did the best you could do at everything you tried and even making
mistakes realising that those mistakes are just more of the schooling we were taught when little kids.
No I wanna or I don't wanna or I'll do it myself leave me alone, wow ig wiw wgat a bybcg if fkunsy excuses we used and
how silly they now sound when we hear them out loud from our own kids or others.
