Our Freedom of Speech

Our freedom of speech

First amendment guarantee

That can be abused

Shouldn’t we use commonsense

By thinking before we speak

An open question

To those that antagonize

Think consequences

  1. Good point. We do have the freedom of speech, but I think a lot of people forget that it doesn’t mean everything SHOULD be said. There are consequences for actions after all.

    • Absolutely, in my humble opinion, just because you can say something doesn’t mean that you should. The “Prophet Mohammad Cartoon Contest” in Texas prompted me to write this. Yes, they have the right to do what they did under freedom of speech, but it doesn’t mean that you should and if you do, be prepared for the consequences of your words and actions. Thanks Carol.

  2. Great post. Not justifying violence ever, but surely one should not antagonize, that is just pouring fuel on the fire. Thank you Dom.
