Vad är frihet?

What is freedom?

I asked a bunch of (small and big) people: "What is freedom?" Here are their answers (some of them gave multiple answers):

Freedom is when no one decides.

Freedom is turning everything off and just being.

Freedom is to travel far far away where no one knows me.

Freedom is being able to look the way you want without feeling wrong.

Freedom is running fast.

Real freedom does not exist.

Freedom is being able to say what you want.

I think of a song by Thomas Di Leva.

Freedom is when no one judges.

Freedom is dancing and partying!

During the summer holidays there is freedom.

Freedom is a feeling.

Those who have war probably don't like freedom.

Freedom is not having homework.

I love freedom!!

Those in prison have no freedom, I think.

Freedom is when we got to go out after Covid.

I do not know..

Freedom is an illusion.

Surely it is sometimes difficult to determine whether the answer comes from an adult or a child? That's exactly what I think, I say a lot about the issue. We all have our image, our definition and our sense of what freedom is - and the way we see it seems to be quite ageless. Perhaps we adults often have the same definition of freedom as we had as children? That that feeling remains.. There are probably many of us, for example, who can still feel the exact feeling of the first seconds of an eternity-long summer holiday...

From all this I think that so many nice conversations can grow! Freedom is such an exciting topic! For both small and large. Do you have something to share? Ask the children at home "What is freedom?" - there is a good chance that the answers will be both unexpected and insightful and that you will end up in a conversation about everything between heaven and earth!
