Freedom, for me is being able to say what I want to, Travel anywhere I want to, eat what I want to and being able to interact with anyone around me. Some people weren’t allowed to talk to or spend time with someone who had different skin colors! I think it’s a stupid idea. Why would people have to separate others from their skin color? I feel lucky to be living here in Japan and at this time. I can talk to anyone around me. I can always keep in touch with someone even in another country. I can even stay close to my family and cuddle whenever I want to.
The country I live in, I think is a very lucky place to be in. No one would ever judge you by your looks. Your friends or classmates might but they never really mean it. 2 opposite gender can do whatever they want to. Even take the same transportation. I can always say what I want to. There are different ways of speaking to others by whether they are older or younger than you but I can always say what I want to without anyone or anything stopping me.
I am very lucky for the school I go to and the way teachers treat us in our school. In old schools, teacher would slap you when you’ve done something that they dislike or others dislike. My teachers would never do this as they know that slapping us would never affect our action. This is something that I take granted for.
Every morning I would think school is a stupid idea, but I know it’s not. They help us for almost anything as in through our education.
But, the most important is your family! They basically do anything for you. Feeds you, purchases things for you with their own money, and work and work and work so that we can go to school and live. They never ignore you either. This is freedom to me.

Looking at Maya’s Blog, I realized that we completely wrote different things. This was a surprise because I thought we would have had the same thought about freedom. She wrote a lot about being able to believe in our own beliefs. I agree with everything she had wrote down.
After looking at Elina’s Blog, again, had wrote down a completely different thing to me. She talked about equity and having no restrictions. She also explained that having no restrictions was a part of making your dream come true. I truly agree with that too.
Above all, I’ve learnt that we all have our own thoughts about freedom. Although it was very surprising, it was actually really fun to read other people’s because they didn’t write the same thing as me.
