365 Reasons to Smile – Day 78

freedom-of-speech-magnifying-glassToday is the first day of Banned Books Week.

Take a minute to celebrate.

Banned Books Week is intended to highlight the right of every American to read what we want, the importance of freedom of information and the harm caused by censorship.

Even though freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press and the right to peaceful assembly are  spelled out in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, there are people who seem the think those rights apply to them but not to others.

And even though they have the right to speak and write about their opinions, I’m grateful that everyone else does too.

And that always makes me smile.

About Trina Bartlett

I live in the Eastern Panhandle of WV, with one dog, two cats, a daughter in high school, a son starting his latest adventures at West Virginia University and a husband who works strange hours. When I'm not working as a director at a nonprofit social service organization or being a mom, I can generally be found riding my bike, walking my dog and stirring things up.
