Coretta Scott King: An Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
Freedom. Freedom means we can speak freely and not worry about what someone is going to say, we are allowed to do what we want and express ourselves freely. I believe in Coretta Scott King's quote "Freedom is never really won, you earn it and win it in every generation." has truth in it and it should be recognized. There are people who fight for our country and sacrifice their lives for us, just so we can have freedom.

The quote that Coretta Scott King made is very true she was a civil rights activist and you can tell that she has thought about our freedom way more than once. Once you achieve fighting for your freedom, you can never go back, but we have to continue to fight for our freedom in order to have our rights. We have to makes sure our freedom does not lie in the wrong person's hands.

The people who fight for us dedicate their lives to save ours'. We should just all fight for our freedom together.

On the other hand, people might say that once you fight for your freedom and win it once, you don't need to fight for it again. If this is true then why do we have soldiers fighting for us every day? Why do we have people risking their lives for us if we only have to fight for our freedom once?

In conclusion, Coretta Scott King's quote is saying we have to fight for our freedom all the time. Like with our parents if they are in the wrong and you are getting punished for it, like getting your phone taken away, then you should talk with them and use your voice to reason. You should be able to fight back with your words, not just physically but mentally and emotionally. I completely agree with the civil rights activist, her quote shows we have to fight for our freedom all the time and not just one person, but a whole
