First Amendment

Patrick Henry once stated, "Give me liberty or give me death!" This quote shows the meaning of freedom in the United States of America. The First Amendment states, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government to a redress of grievances." The First Amendment guarantees the American people powerful rights: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, the right to assembly peacefully, and the right to petition the government. These freedoms are the basis on which our country is founded on.

The first amendment pertains to every aspect of our lives, whether it is in regards to the religion we choose to follow, the ideas we choose to explicate, or the words we choose to speak and read. In each instance we often take for granted, we are being allowed the greatest gift as an inherited right; the sovereignty of our minds.
