This is one of my personal favorite paintings representing freedom. In this painting Betsy Ross first presents the flag of United States of America to George Washington. This is the first appearance of the U.S. flag, and is still a proud moment in our history today. This painting shows freedom in many different aspects. One being, the flag of the United States of America being presented to George Washington as the flag was when our country started. Another is the expression of pride they have, and the reason for that pride is due to the freedom of our country.

Catalonia wants freedom from Spain and is desperately putting up a fight to get it. This article written by Harriet Alexander and James Badcock from Madrid Spain, tells about the events occurring between Catalonia and Spain. It explains the importance of freedom and why it is a good cause to fight for. My personal opinion is that freedom is worth fighting for and it is very important to a country. Like many others, I believe that freedom is what builds nations and makes them strong. Catalonia hopes to gain their independence and become their own country soon.
"Where does it say you gotta live and die here? Where does it say a guy can't catch a break? Why should you only take what you're given? Why should you spend your whole life livin' trapped where there ain't no future even at seventeen breaking your back for someone else's sake." These powerful words, sung by Jack Kelly the leader of the New York City newsboys, talk about what it would be like to be free. Free from living on the streets, being forced to sell newspapers their whole lives. He sings about just taking what is given to him, and not being able to work and earn more then just what is handed to him. This is the opposite of freedom. Jack Kelly's dream is to have freedom, and being stuck as a newsboy in the big city of New York, he isn't free. "Santa Fe! My old friend, I can't spend my whole life dreamin' though that's all I seem inclined to do. I ain't getting any younger and I wanna start brand new. I need space and fresh air let them laugh in my face I don't care. Save my place I'll be there." People think his dream is going to Santa Fe, it's not. His real dream is freedom. And if he can't get that in New York then he wants to be somewhere like Santa Fe where he will be free.
