“What do you think about when I say the word ‘freedom’?” This question was asked by 11-year-old Sara during a recent speech contest. This peppy homeschooler wowed her audience by not talking about Americans’ rights, or what it means to simply be free. Instead, Sara’s talk was about “how Americans are slowly loosing their freedom.

Watching Sara’s presentation on YouTube, one would think it she was actually an adult in disguise. After all, what 11 year-old understands the concept of government seizing private property in the name of environmental protection, current threats to the freedom of speech, or violations to the Second Amendment?

Watch this video to see Sarah’s complete presentation.

What was Sara given that others her age seem to be lacking in today’s society? Sara was taught form a young age to love liberty and appreciate the sacrifices made by our Founders who established our form of government.

If only more young people were in-tune with our political system and the gradual decay of American liberty!

Not surprisingly, Sara won 1st place for her excellent speech and became a source of inspiration for all who have viewed it (just read the comments left by viewers).

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for our readers. Cathy
