Letters to the Editor may seem of no real importance at first mention, but when one stops to consider these efforts are born of the right of free speech, reevaluation may be in order.
Passionate men of letters, for whom I am forever thankful, helped form our United States of America.
+ The Articles of Confederation
+ The Declaration of Independence
+ The American Constitution
+ The Bill of Rights
Without the continuation of knowledge on, and support for, these documents of freedom, American freedom cannot stand.
These are also passionate reminders that freedom is not free. Freedom is a continuous work in progress, which we must be willing to protect. It must be nurtured throughout every generation of Americans to ensure its success.
Is your writing passionate? Can you get to the core of freedom through your pen?
