Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.
- John Keats (1795-1821)

Inspired by John Keats (1795-1821)'s quote, "Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced.". The titled responsion is...
Nothing ever gets real until it's experienced -- even the proverb "It never rains until it pours" is no better than a saying to you until your life has shown it. Many living under the United States' confines of the nation have only experienced a proverbial 'freedom', lacking corporeal examples thereof. To be in a position to experience freedom and be able to live without the constant fear of financial collapse or economic collapse is something many have yet to achieve.
In some areas in the United States there are those who have chosen to live in the shadows, for example the deep south which is not well-known for the best economic conditions. However, what they are experiencing under their belt as opposed to what others are is the freedom from financial instability.
When they were in the country, they had their choice of residing on the left or the right side of the road. The left was the more dangerous side as the people living on the right side had greater safety as compared to the people living on the left. However, today the reverse applies.
Freedom means more than just 'the right to live'. Freedom means being able to live in your own home, without having to worry about the cost of living. It also means the ability to move around in your own country without having to worry about moving into a neighborhood where you don't fit in. Freedom means being able to experience your own life, without the fear of having to pay for your own transportation.
Many in the US are experiencing the freedom of having the ability to create money from their own efforts. This freedom does not exist in other countries around the world. The ability to create money is not a right, it's an opportunity that should be considered for those willing to put forth an effort.
The great America, we are leading the world into is a society that is free, strong and prosperous in so many ways. But there is still much to do.
As long as we live in a country where our freedoms are constantly threatened by foreign nations, or political powers which are bent on imposing their values upon us; we will never be able to enjoy these freedoms. until it happens. And then what we must all do is to live in this country, not to worry and wait for another day.
We must be the change we want to see in the world. By choosing to take the time to learn more about the freedoms that are within our reach, we will be able to create the change we have always wanted.
