Something to Ponder on July 4th- Again

from last year:

Something to ponder on July 4th:
-Have opinions. Be able to defend your opinions. Do not expect everyone will agree with you. Do not call people names. Engage opinions of others that you find untrue and tell them why. Persuade and be persuaded. Do not agree for the sake of agreement. Do not go with the crowd because it is the popular thing to do (unless the crowd is right). Question your presuppositions and your post-suppositions. Stand for something bigger than yourself.

In order to perpetuate freedom of thought and expression and to honor those who do not have or have not had access to it, we are obligated to have this type of discourse in society.
