Silence is a symptom of submission. First Amendment Day is an annual, national-level celebration of action. The first amendment of the U.S. constitution guarantees our ability to shape the world by fighting what we oppose and promoting what we support. Yet surveys show that many Americans take these freedoms for granted or even complain that the first amendment grants too much freedom.
