    [MUSIC PLAYING] One of the greatest freedoms our Father in Heaven gave us is to be able to be with our family, with our grandchildren, do things together in love.

    The ability and freedom to go about pursuing my goals in life, to me, is what true freedom is all about.

    I think one of the most fulfilling parts of my life is the ability to love and to be loved.

    I'm grateful for the opportunity that I have to pursue an education and to learn more about my capabilities and talents.

    I'm grateful for the freedom I have to believe in a God and worship according to my beliefs.

    Freedom for my kids to have an education. To send my family out to play without being worried by anything.

    For me to understand really what freedom is, I have to understand what the consequences of not having freedom are.

    I'm grateful for free will in general. Free will is one of the greatest gifts, if not the greatest gift that God has given us.

    I'm grateful for the freedom of raising my kids and helping them become the person they want to be.

    To be able to wake up and to choose to be happy and to not be held back by a circumstance is something that I'm grateful for.

    Freedom's being and feeling that you can be proud of who you are. It's a big deal for us.
