what is freedom to me freedom is never having to say no when you really want to say yes let me let me I mean let me delve into that just a little bit when I was six years old no I think I was eight years old I had a an assignment by my my teacher which was to go home over the weekend and to come back with what I believed was the definition of success and I began thinking about this over the weekend I looked at my parents and that just my parents didn’t seem to fit my eight-year-old definition of success and I start regarding all of my family members and anybody I knew and something hit me during that weekend I remember when my mother during one Christmas could not actually get me the gift that I wanted I wanted this special skateboard and so I got a skateboard but it wasn’t the skateboard that I wanted in the skateboard that I wanted was very professional and it was just a little bit too expensive for my mother to have and I remember looking into her eyes on Christmas Day when I opened up my present and I saw the deep disappointment in her face when she saw that I realized it wasn’t escape word that I wanted and so my mother my mother I knew that moment wanted to say yes to the gift that I wanted but she couldn’t and so during that weekend when I was eight years old I thought about that and I came back in class on Monday and I gave my definition my definition of success mrs.
