Have you ever started your day worrying if the police will arrest you because you were reported going to an unauthorized church? If you were in China, millions of citizens face that threat every day. Have you ever worried that if you said something critical of the government, you might be arrested? If you were in Cuba, you’d be on the government’s wanted list. We take our First Amendment freedoms for granted. But if we care about them, we must be willing to protect them. So don’t take your freedoms for granted. One of the ways you can protect your freedom is by voting. And there’s a special election in 3 House and Senate districts this Tuesday, November 2. So be informed, be involved, and vote to protect our First Amendment freedoms.
