1st Amendment Birthday

1st Amendment Birthday

225 years ago (1791) the First Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified.  Here’s the text in case you’ve forgotten:

First Amendment - Religion and Expression. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

All of those freedoms protect us as individuals and groups and organizations from the government, be it federal or our local officials.  Use them or lose them.
