Freedom isn't mine -- it's ours

The prevalent self centered definition of freedom misses the value of freedom as the glue that unites us as a nation. Freedom is the ability to say and do as I please but, with the responsibility to consider the impact of my actions on others. The gimme gimme of entitlement is a divider perverted by the false mantra of victim hood as a substitute for personal responsibility. Gimme gimme isn't freedom -- it's greed.
