There are certain things in life that are necessary for it to be considered a free life.
Are people really free? This question only comes up when the answer is no, and so I ask again, are people free? It is true that one cannot do anything one wants. It would be intolerable for one to have the right to go around and do dreadful acts just because one can. Freedoms are rights that are incontrovertible even by those of power. It must be fought for because it is a right to do anything one wants if it is not harmful. This is demonstrated by the great writing of Joyce M. Jarrett "Freedom." The inalienable right of freedom should not go without regulations and laws. The greatest example of this is the United States of America itself. Freedom applies to government doctrines and documents, such as the Constitution and the three branches of government, as well as the general public. Freedom is an inalienable right that should be fought for if it is dishonored. A right such as freedom cannot be given, only accepted.
People in the past fought for freedom for reasons that cannot be described in words, only in feeling. To emphasize this, the definition of freedom is "n. liberty; immunity; indecorous familiarity;" according to New Webster's Dictionary (1992). Freedom is much more than liberty and immunity. It is a natural right that we are born with. It is knowing that one cannot be penalized for actions that are not harmful to their selves, others or anyone else's rights and freedoms. Joyce M. Jarrett is someone that knows this fact from first hand experiences. In the year 1966, Jarrett first attended an all-white school for the first time. It was her decision that made her realize what was actually going on in the world. She came to realize that her natural rights and freedoms were being violated. Words of hate such as "KKK Forever," "Back to Africa," and "Nigger Go Home" on the mouths and signs of fellow students symbolized the freedoms that the whites had at that time that she and her fellow "colored" people did not by showing them what they would not be allowed to do.
