What freedoms do you most value?
“I’m pregnant for the first time with a daughter. I hope she’ll be able to speak her mind when she’s ready to. A lot of women don’t have that freedom.”
~ Erika Dasilva, Highland Mills
“The freedom to travel, not only in your country, but around the world. It heightens our sense of being members of the global community.” ~ Donald Arrant, Cold Spring, with his son, Robin Huckleberry“Everyone should be able to say what they want. And no one should be turned away because of their color or race.”  ~ Josephine Foley-Hedlund, Cold Spring
