Statue of Liberty

I had a great conversation with Oliver today.
O: Mommy,what does liberty mean?
Mommy: It means freedom.
O: What does freedom mean?
M: It means that you get to make your own choices about things. In some countries the president tells people what they should do, like where to go to church and where to live, but in our country we get to make our own choices.
O: (brief pause) Then why don't we get to choose our own seat at a restaurant?
Love this kid!
