"Freedom of speech is important. If, in a certain country, you can't express what you think or how you feel, then what's the point of living in that given country? Even if no one agrees with you, freedom of speech is essential in any nation." Ed Apen, VOX Reporter & Social Media Editor

First of all, I think freedom of religion is essential for making our country what it is today. Hundreds of people have suffered and still suffer due to the lack of recognition of this right. Also necessary is the freedom of speech. If the government were never told the views of its citizens, how could it ever hope to improve? Monica Daniels

"With the freedom of religion I, and others, can do the simple everyday things like going to church, praying in public, and wearing religious items such as holy medals or a crucifix. We are one nation under God and the freedom of religion allows us to live our faith  publicly with our words and actions." Allison Mach, VOX Reporter

"Freedom of speech is very important to me. Not only through just talking, but through writing as well. Freedom of press is another one I find important. For, without the freedom to write and show others the truth, I don't know where we'd be now!" Audra Tulipana
