For me,it means living in the greatest country on Earth. Being able to worship,or not worship as we please,without fear of repercussion or death. It means we,as women can voice our opinions, vote as we please, hold office,and do what we can to help make the world a better place for ourselves, our children,and the people we will never meet. It means that anyone, regardless of race, creed, religion or national origin can become President, and make history in the process. It means when a terrible tragedy strikes, we pull together,as only Americans can and do. Going the distance to help someone who will probably never get the chance to say "thank you", and not caring whether we hear that or not. It means we are free to love, care about,and spend our lives with the person of our choice,not who we have been "pledged" to, and we are free to make a living in the way we want,and to pursue education to better ourselves.
