Freedom Week

Today, as a part of “Celebrate Freedom Week” we are focusing on the “Bill of Rights.” What is the big deal about the “Bill of Rights?” How does it affect your life? If you don’t know, ask a person who was involved in the Civil Rights movement; or a person who was allowed to participate in any religion they wanted; or a person who was arrested got their “due process”. According to the “Bill of Rights” these people were guarantee the right to protest, to participate in any religion they wanted, and to have a right to defend themselves if arrested. Fearing that the central government was given too much power by the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights was added to “spell out the immunities [freedoms] of individual citizens.” The intent of the first ten amendments was to protect the rights of citizens from their government and guarantee us our “unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” Since then, it has protected the rights of citizens from housing soldiers during war time; it has allowed you and others to speak, write, and protest about things the government has done that you do not agree with; and if arrested, you will not receive cruel and unusual punishment. So what is the big deal about the “Bill of Rights?” Read the Bill of Rights and see how it affects your everyday life to see what the big deal is about. Celebrate Freedom Week!
