“To be American is to be born with the notion that one will have the epitome of freedoms in life, though the older I get, the more I question how free I truly feel.” —Thomas Slatin

  1. I guess the country can give us freedom, but only each person decides if wants to be free or not, all depends in the personal decitions and choioces.

  2. America ia a free country and I wish countries that repress their citizens can follow through.. Nice post

  3. When you think of freedom, think of America. The photograph even shows sign of freedom.

  4. This is very relatable. A lot of people feel like our liberties are slowly being taken away from us.

  5. This is quite natural. Many people learn more as they get old and see just how flawed the system is.

  6. I can’t disagree with your statement. But I must say it’s even worse in other countries.

  7. In my opinion freedom is a state of mind. Once you feel free in your mind then you are truly free.

  8. This quote is so true. We are never really free. A lot of aspects of our lives are still controlled.

  9. We may not be perfect as a country when it comes to Liberty but i’m sure we’re among the best in the world. That’s something to be grateful for.

  10. The recent happenings in the political scene also doesn’t make things better. Let’s pray for our country.

  11. It is the same experience with me and the rest of the world. Well sometimes I just wonder if it just a notion too.

  12. I wouldn’t mind hearing you expand on that and why your feelings of freedom are limited all of a sudden. I guess once you go down a path, it’s harder to change it as you get older, but trying new things like traveling, outdoor sports or taking new classes are always available. The amount you can learn is endless in life and to me that feels a lot like freedom.

  13. I believe we all feel that way because with adulthood comes greater responsibilities. Something that we do not have as a child thus, more questions. However, it all depends on how we handle it.

  14. It’s nice to be able to live in a free country. Some people do not experience freedom. Feel blessed that you are able to do what you want to do in life because not all have that privilege.

  15. Its a great quote to hold on for a great country like America. Brings a lot of hope for the future.

  16. America is one of the countries with the best democracies in the world. In other countries, they are slowly trying to emulate it.

  17. Its like when you are a child, you want to grow up so that you can have all the freedom that grown ups have. Only to grow up and realize even them they are not that free.

  18. I can totally relate and understand this, some things in life seem to be illusion, they more we run after it, the more it elude us.

  19. It’s not all alone for America. It’s the world we are living in. Just being slave of our lives.

  20. A very strong saying I would say, but being born in a particular country doesn’t determine how free you would be. Freedom is a thing of the mind.
