Afterwards, she describes some characteristics of freedom and emphasizes the importance of not taking it for granted. O’Grady talks about different forms of freedom of expression in every profession and by quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson she says that when we use our God-given talents to reach our highest potential, we are giving ourselves and making the case for freedom.
