Freedom of Expression

Freedom of ExpressionIn 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke of Four Freedoms that should be enjoyed by people everywhere, during a turbulent time in the world. The first was “Freedom of Speech and Expression.” While this freedom is a constitutional right of Americans, it is not so in many places across the globe; where Christians cannot express their faith openly, wave their Bibles, or celebrate holy days in public places.  So much has been sacrificed by so many for so long to win this right for us.  When we feel oppressed, or our freedoms impinged upon, may we remember that most of us today have never experienced true persecution and be deeply grateful to God for this country that we can call home.
