What Does Freedom Mean to Me...

This essay was written by Zachary (7 years old)

We get to choose whatever we want. Freedom lets us choose to even dress. I am grateful for the army that is protecting our freedom. We can make our own choices. We don't have to go to school on Sundays. We are so lucky to have our freedom. I am so happy to see the flag each day. I am so glad to put my hand on my heart and sing for the flag. I am so grateful for those people that died for me.

Zach is honored to be the only second grader chosen to read his essay to the school at the Veterans' Day Assembly. You wrote a great essay, Zach! Keep up the great work!
