The fourth: Enjoying and respecting freedom

The freedom to knowingly put down a rock in favor of another's benefit

The freedom to pursue our dreams, as high as they may lead us
The freedom to learn, from many different books, people, and experiences
The freedom to enjoy the simple pleasures of life
The freedom for our loved ones to live without fear

"It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain - that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom - and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." portion from Gettyburg Address
