Boys, I want to tell you a story that has a meaning. When I was a boy I had three turtles. They had a beautiful terrarium with rather low sides. They had everything they needed except one thing . . . FREEDOM. Every chance they had, they would climb out.
People in many countries in this world lack the same thing, FREEDOM. But not in America. In America we have Freedom to of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom to go wherever we chose, the Freedom to Worship God as we wish and the Freedom to choose people to govern us.
A boy like you can grow up to be wherever he dreams of being. This is why I love America. Don’t you? Good Night!
