Freedoms taken for granted


Again, Mr. Leggett has expressed himself well in his Feb. 12 letter to the editor, “Constitutional quiz.”

Our rights and freedoms are disappearing, one by one!

Perhaps, we who enjoy these rights and freedoms ought to pay closer attention to how these laws are being interpreted, in the courts and legislative decisions made by our so-called representatives.

Admittedly I’m one who takes these for granted and am partially responsible for the outcome of this past election!

Shame on me!

Don’t many of us share this too?

Perhaps we’re a little comfortable in our lives and not caring enough about how these decisions ultimately affect each of us.

If we’re not careful, the right to vote and the gatherings in our houses of worship could be taken away!
