Free Speech

Wayan speaks

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

Happy Independence day everyone. 231 years ago we declared ourselves from tyranny of dictatorship and declared all men equal, none more valuable than another. Among the inalienable rights granted to all are the rights of life and liberty and pursuit of happiness.

This revolution lead to the creation of the Constitution, and the enumeration of other rights, including the freedom of speech, the freedom of assembly, and the freedom of expression in the public venue.

These rights are inalienable and granted to us by our Creator. Today we celebrate those rights, those who have sacrificed to secure them, and all who believe in them.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
