Freedom

This story reflects our past. The past the present and the future are all important we learn from the past so we can fix the present so that the future is better place for all. I have read all of these books as they came out and the story still reads the the same appeals to most ages and is relatable even today which speaks volumes about the author enjoy these books everyone as I have over the years.
