    Constant vigilance and valuing your integrity over your life.

    One gets freedom at the cost of sacrifice. My country, Bangladesh, to get independence, had to pay a heavy price-murder, rape, arson, what not, but in the end they came out as heroes, and we will never forget our martyrs. My father was serving in the Pakistan Air Force at the time. All Bengali armed forces  officers serving in West Pakistan at the time opted for a separate homeland, and thus had to suffer two years in confinement. I wrote a poem ' Adieu Warsak' in HubPages, which briefly tells the story. We sacrificed in our own way, which one may fail to notice, as we had to start from scratch, but despite all the hardship, freedom smelt so sweet!

    Sacrifice is definitely one of the costs of freedom. While here in America, it sometimes seems like we have forgotten exactly what we sacrificed to gain our own freedom, there are many examples of other countries fighting for their own.

    To maintain freedom is almost as hard as achieving it, I think. Each citizen has to take the responsibility of knowing what is going on in their country or community, and working to keep it free. We have to find ways to solve our problems without giving up freedom. We have to be understanding of other people and their beliefs to allow them to be free. We have to find the boundary between doing things because it is safer or easier and doing things because it preserves freedom.

    We have to give up our own need to change everything and everyone around us to make sure that everyone is free, not just some. This seems dangerous, especially now, with all of the talk about terrorism and extremists, but we have to choose as a people whether it is better to die free because of some person that cracked (and would have probably been just as violent and crazy anyway) or to live constricted by rules and laws meant to "protect."

    the costs of freedom are willingness to give whatever we have of value to retain our freedom and to remain informed to prevent being taken over by entities whose goals are formed by greed and self-interest.
