    utmost freedom. The soccer field is where I feel free. Straight from the dictionary, freedom is “the power to act, speak, or think as one wants without hindrance and restraint.” (Merriam-Webster 1), but each person has their own personal definition of freedom.

    “Tweet” went the ear piercing whistle, as we were doing our passing drills. All of the many players huddled in around Coach Cline as practice was ending soon. My body was aching all over, my eyes drooping and my ears half-listening. I almost dozed off as the coach was talking about the next game and my eyes and ears flickered on when he mentioned who will be starting this next game.

Fortunately, he survived but to this day

    Personal Freedom To pinpoint exactly what a generalized definition of personal freedom is and how to ensure it may almost seem impossible . To me it is the human capability of expressing rational or irrational daily decisions. Simple and can be very innocent ,but as innocent as it can be it is also subject to some of the most, ruthless , selfish, heartless decisions.
