Freedom To Speak Our Minds

The freedom to speak our minds is a precious gift. Throughout the world, throughout history, it has been and is a rare privilege. The privilege should oblige us in return to broaden and strengthen our minds, so that what we speak is worthy of free people. ... If we remind ourselves that free speech was a hard-won fight, we may have more respect for the way we enjoy it. (The Promise of a New Day, 6 March)
