Aloha Friday


An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.
I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a
comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!


My Question:

What is your Freedom worth to you? Is it worth fighting for? Are you concerned at all for America?



My Answer:

Kind of strange question.. I know.. But with the times we are in.. I sometimes wonder.. if people really think about what our Freedom is.. and what the cost is... I have been so burdened with the condition of things in our country.

My answer to the question: is everything.. my kids future.. my families future.. Then I think what am I willing to do.. to protect this country.. to protect my family's freedom.

I think our freedom is being threatened more and more everyday. In some ways, until its "knocking" on our front door..some of us..will not wake up. I really think it's time to wake up.. now.., put aside party lines, and get involved. Let's show our children.. how important our freedom is.. America is worth fighting for!

I wrote a post the other day on how we can get involved.. and places to find like minded people! You can read it here!

I completely agree - in my own small way I am trying to get my thoughts concerns out there. I blog about my thoughts and fears. I welcome debate on my blog when I do write about it and try to get people to think about what could happen. Not what will but what could. Maybe if we all think about it we can prevent it.

What is my freedom worth to me?

The answers posted by your readers makes me eager to read them...

My freedom IS WORTH MORE THAN YOU WILL KNOW...

My husband is currently in Afghanistan, fighting...
For you, for me.. for us...
He is fighting for his children.
We have a 7 month old that he has seen for maybe a month total of his life.
So, yes...
I think it is worth fighting for.
If not, then what did his friends who are no longer with us die for?

I sent three years in the army. Hubby retired from the army. I know how it is to fight and sacrifice for freedom. it is very important if we are to live in the USA as we do.

My Hubby served 22 yrs in the USAF. He served in Bosnia while I was pregnant w/ our first & he's been in Iraq & Afghanistan although not during any of the current conflicts. Like most military spouses I can't even tell you everything my wonderful husband has done because I DON'T KNOW.

We've been married for 18 yrs & I'm so very proud of him & what he's done for all of us not to mention the military members who are serving currently. I am deeply grateful for the commitment that some people are willing to show to ensure our safeties & freedoms.

Auntie E said...

It is very important. We need to be able to live as we see fit. have our own minds and have free will. however we also need to be protected against evil. Our government has a duty to us and we to our government. I do not want them to control how we live and how we choose to raise our children. This is a hard thing to balance in today's world. there are so many people who think differently. So because we are not a one God country, the morals have changed. I really hope we will become "one nation under one God again". I fear that can not be, we have gone to far with our freedom.

Michelle said...

Yes. If freedom's not worth fighting for then nothing is. My husband too served in Iraq, with the Army. I know about sacrifice, but I am sure by the time this is over, I'll know quite a bit more.

Our freedom is hanging by a thread. It's not good enough to preserve what we still have left, we must reverse the course of the last hundred years.

I think you'd like my political blog. Come check it out. www.proper-role-of-government.blogspot.com . I'm a radical in the same way Thomas Jefferson was.

We are a military family and my hubby is overseas right now, Freedom means a lot to me!

TheAngelForever said...

I think we take our freedoms for granted. We need to remember those that are sacrificing their lives and putting theirs on the line to keep things for us that we have always had.

Considering what my ancestors went through to come here to fight oppression and so I can have freedom, I am very grateful for this country.

Have a great day!

I am so amazed by those who serve in our military & by their families who sacrifice so much when their loved ones go off to Afghanistan or Iraq! I really appreciate that they don't hesitate to protect us and put their lives on the line. Freedom is very important to me and I hope that I can pass that onto my son.

My freedom is the most important right and privilege I have as an American.

Annie said...

Yes, freedom is worth fighting for! I totally agree! This is a very deep question and I wish I had more time to answer - but suffice it to say I 100% agree with what you posted :)

Baba said...

Very worth fighting for. If we don't watch out all our choices will be taken away without our even knowing it.

East Coast Wahine said...

Yes, freedom is important! I've believe we need to fight to keep our freedom for ourselves as well as our children and future generations. I have served in the military as did my husband, my siblings, my father and other numerous family members!

1stopmom said...

What a good question :) I think that the worth of our freedom is priceless. I definitely think it is worth fighting for.

~*~ Melissa ~*~ said...

Yes, I think it's worth fighting for. However, I do not agree with a lot of the things our government does. It's a no win situation however you look at it.

Cathi said...

The freedom of our country is very importanat to me. As a mother and a grandmother I worry everyday because of the things that are happening in our country. My personal belief is that it's going to get much worse before people take off their blinders and realize what is happening to our country.

Eliza said...

Such great answers!! I stand behind them all. :)

My new blog is up, would love to have you visit!

Heather said...

I have a hard time answering this because I have three boys. Of course freedom means everything...but I do not push being in the military to my boys. I have an enormous respect for the wives and mothers who send their husbands and sons to protect us. And... politics makes me crazy! I will check out the groups you have mentioned:)

JamericanSpice said...

We are a military family too. Most of my inlaws are in the military or have been in there fighting for our freedom. I know it means everything and we should take it more seriously and support these families who sacrifice it all for us.

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
