The existence of free speech insures that each voice is heard and acknowledged and although our opinions may differ and elicit fiery debate, the opportunity to learn and create a pursuit of truth and understanding is invaluable. Our nation’s strength lies in our ability to express our opinions, often in opposition to government, which creates debate and ushers in change. Free speech is the foundation of the United States’ greatness. To stifle the voice of humanity is to extinguish the flame of democracy which burns bright throughout the world. To limit the ability to speak ones conscience is to stifle the voice of humanity.
