Freedom Giveaway Hop

Many thanks to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Simply Stacie for hosting the Freedom Giveaway Hop!  I am glad to be taking part in this hop.  I must say, I am very grateful for my freedoms and liberties.  As a veteran that served in the United States Navy, I cherish my freedoms and am grateful for all those that served before me and continue to serve.

I will be giving away a copy of BEAUTIFUL CREATURES by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

Of course, like always, you DO NOT HAVE to be a follower via GFC, Twitter or Facebook, but I would certainly appreciate it!  :)  To enter, please leave a comment, share a bit about what freedom means to you!  Be sure to include an email to contact you!  Additional entries for each way you follow (but not required).  ALSO, if you served, please comment with your branch of service and service dates and I will put your name ‘in the hat’ for a little something extra!!  This giveaway is open to both U.S. residents as well as Canadian residents (my mom is a native of Edmonton!  Shout out to all my Canadian family!).

Enjoy your holiday and be sure to take time to be grateful for your freedoms!

    Freedom, to me, is the ability to have a choice in my religion, my right to bear arms, my right to free speech. It all means so much! My father fought for our country in Vietnam & Korea. My daughter’s father is newly retired USMC! We are a very patriotic family!

    Freedom, to me, means the chance to live my life the way I choose, to love those I want to love, to say the things I want to say, to read the books I want to read, to travel, to work, to have my children.

    Freedom is the rights, the laws of this country, and I’m so grateful for that. I would not be able to go to school, I would not be able to be a proud female, I would not be able to vote, I would not be able to dance, or sing, so many would-not-be’s, if it were not for this country. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THE GIVEAWAY!! C:

    Freedom to me means having rights that can’t be taken away regardless of my race,gender,religion or personal way of life. It also means recognizing and appreciating those who have sacrificed to give me the freedom that I enjoy. My husband is currently serving in the United States Navy and I am proud to be a military spouse

    Freedom means having choice. It means the government not controlling every aspect of your life. I’m so grateful for the freedom I have in my life!

    To me, freedom is doing everything I want to everyday without fear or worries. I know I take it for granted but I also try and show the men and women out on the front lines that I appreciate what they give me everyday.

    Thanks for the giveaway! To me freedom is the ability to have more choices in life without getting in trouble with the authorities. I can say whatever I want and it’s protected. That’s awesome.
