Freedom is one of the values that America has fought for and is greatly admired by other nations. The phrase ‘I have the right’ is commonly used, an indication of the freedom that Americans are entitled. Citizens have the right to make a decision using their own criteria and the responsibility to accept the consequences. According to Norton (8), children had a great deal of freedom. When I was young, my parents made me do simple chores for myself and they felt proud if I managed. The small independent success of childhood gives way to adulthood freedom, such as choosing a career, living away from parents and getting married without interference from anyone. My parents taught me the importance of freedom which makes it one of the most prized values that I live with. This value is very significant as I can choose my religion and the college that I want to attend among other fundamental choices in life.
