This quote relates to the movie “Blind Sight” in many ways.
In the movie, the kids that had gone blind never gave up on their dreams. The
kids climbed Mt. Everest. But in life they never gave up on accomplishing goals
like making something of themselves. For example, Toshi went and started the
biggest massage place in his city that also serves cold drinks. The quote
relates to my life because it is telling me never to give up on goals I make
and to never let anyone take me down. This quote
is saying to never let go of your dreams.
America is different from many countries. You will find one thing in the United States of
America that you will never find anywhere else. Freedom. Freedom is important to us Americans and it is shown by soldiers, sacrifice, and in World War II.
Our soldiers represent our freedom. They fight and put their lives in jeopardy just so we can be free. They are the reason we can go to church where we want and choose where we go to school. There are five branches of military. There is the Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The National Guard is apart of the Army branch.
Sacrifice. Soldiers sacrifice themselves everyday. Today, men and woman are over seas fighting terrorists like Isis. That takes a lot of sacrifice and bravery. Each and every American fighter is taking a risk. Not knowing if they will be able to come back home alive. We cannot thank a soldier enough for taking that risk.
On November 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. America had no choice. We were going into World War II. Soldiers left their families and went off to fight. We lost close to 25 million soldiers. Freedom doesn't come free. Those soldiers paid the price for our freedom. They saw it all. From the suffering adults and children in Auschwitz, a concentration camp ran by the Nazis, to just watching fellow friends and possibly family get shot. The physical wounds were painful and brutal, but the mental wounds were the hardest to heal. We won the war and we redeemed our freedom.
May God bless the soldiers that have fought for our country. Whether they fought in WWII, Vietnam, Korea, or are now fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq. We can never thank them enough for their service. We are blessed to have people in this country that would sacrifice themselves just so we can have the one thing most other countries don't have. Freedom.
