Freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom to peaceably assemble in a public place, freedom of the press, and the freedom to petition the government to right grievances. Its very easy to find these rights online, but fully understanding them is another story, and actually using them in a constructive way is more so.
The First Amendment to the Constitution I consider the most important. It guarantees freedom of religion and freedom of speech, the right to assemble and the right to petition Congress for redress of grievances. How different our lives would be if we were unable to say what we thought, if we were unable to attend the church of our choice, if we were unable to gather together for a common reason and if we were not allowed use of our court system. Our world would be very different.
We have those who hold themselves to the highest moral ground that they have the audacity to believe that we need to limit our free speech in order to "protect the feelings of others", arguing that "hate speech is not free speech". This is being pushed and they believe themselves to be against any criticism, simply calling it bigotry. I am all for the First Amendment and that we do need to fully understand our rights, but with what's going on today, I believe we need to emphasize it now more than ever.
