March 20, 2011. Give me the freedom to express my thoughts and my opinions, but do not give me the freedom to use my words to bring slander on another person, to tear apart a person's reputation with lies. Give me freedom to express myself through art or music, but do not give me freedom to debase what is sacred, to degrade what is pure. Give me freedom to worship, but do not give me freedom to force others to wear my cross or whatever symbol represents my belief. Give me the freedom to enjoy all that was made for me to enjoy, but do not give me the freedom to take it from others.
