The First Amendment of the United States of America
Freedom the right given to 318 million Americans. How do we utilize this privilege? Unfortunately we are lacking the use of the right. Recently the Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted an American Time Use Survey and discovered Americans are working twenty-six minutes less than in 2007. Instead the growth of leisure activities has increased, especially sleeping and watching TV. The Freedom House released a report stating 43 countries or 36 percent of the world population is ”not free” and 18 percent of the population is ”partly free.” Besides more than half the global population (54%) do not possess the same rights of freedom we do. Despite this millions of us are humiliating ourselves by not taking advantage of our rights of freedom. For example 42.1 million people smoke, 17.6 million adults suffer from alcohol, and 48 million people aged 12 and older have used drugs for non medical reasons in the United States. It is our choice what you would like to experiment with but intoxicating yourselves by drinking, taking drugs, and smoking only kills your beautiful soul. One that is filled with loads of vibrant ideas, thoughts, and a future that can take you to wherever you desire. Why choose a path of death occupied with laziness instead of LIFE. You were given this life, not to exist but to do something REMARKABLY AMAZING. Currently 1.2 million American soldiers serve a country of freedom and we must represent ourselves well by speaking out for the others in this world who are unable to. We are given this incredible right to make a difference not just in America but the world. Furthermore freedom is not just a right it is a superpower destined to be used for our well-being.
