Freedom – A Tanka
The crisis goes on –
fear mongering overflows,
rage fills broken hearts.
The revolution descends
changing futures forever.
All of us value our free speech. It is that freedom that has allowed us to share our thoughts on our blogs and in our many writings. Writing has always been a way for me to deal with the feelings that roll around inside my head. Just think for a moment if the government censored our freedom to speech. Where would we be?
The first step in destabilizing a government is to limit the people’s freedom of speech.
Wikipedia shares (click the highlighted links below to learn more):
“The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion, ensuring that there is no prohibition on the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble, or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, as one of the ten amendments that constitute the Bill of Rights.”
Know your rights. Hugs and love to all.
