lot of rights

You have the right to be silent, anything you say or do, can be held against you in a court of law… it’s not fun anymore; the man with the badge has crashed your party!!! Where does he have the right to spoil your fun? You have the right to have fun to have your friend and parity! It’ your big day to have fun! You have the right to speak with an attorney? Hey what he saying? Why is he taking my rights to liberty to do as I please, to pursue happiness? Why is he reading me my rights? You are under arrest!  In the United States we a have a bill of rights that grantee all citizens certain rights and freedoms; with each there is a price. Here are some of the rights that we don’t have. We don’t have the right to deprive anyone of the same right we claim for our self. We don’t have the right to abuse any right or freedom we claim for our self.Here is a poem Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
As a blogger or a social web user we have the right to go anywhere, do or say anything we want, but like the poem we have a target. Where would you be if the arrow hit your friend’s heart and not the song? Not all people on the web should be targets some are too young to understand, some may find offence. Writing on the web is like shooting an arrow you do not know where it will land. If a mighty oak was all that was on the web your post may only scar its bark. The reasonability is the price to be paid in advance.
Thank you for your time god bless.

Interesting post! We all have freedom of speech. We just have to hope that people use that freedom responsibly.

Roy, excellent points. Be careful little fingers what you type. Respect the rights of others and beware of where the arrow may land. Great food for thought.
