Freedom Choice and Responsibility
自由 选择 责任
I love choices.
I love to walk around in bookstores-not because I can buy all the books,
but because I could buy one book, and I have so many to choose from.
I like buffets.
I rarely get to go to them, but when I do,
the first thing I do is to walk around and see what the choices are.
I also like the Internet.
It seems like cyberspace really doesn't have any limits.
There are so many things to discover--- like space.
Sometimes, I think we don't appreciate the freedom that we have.
We are free to make many different choices.
From the food we eat--- to the places we visit--- to the people we meet--- to the classes we take and on and on and on.
But freedom has dangers. If misused, it can be harmful.
I could pile a mountain of food on my plate and NOT to eat it.
It would be a waste. But that's a choice I have.
The Internet has dangers, too.
If parents are not careful and don't supervise what their kids can see--- well kids can lose some of their innocence because of freedom.
There's a reason for legal age limits when it comes to driving, gambling, drinking,smoking, and voting.
Until we reach that age, we aren't free to do those things.
