My oxygen...

Censorship reflects society's lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime. ~Potter Stewart

We have a natural right to make use of our pens as of our tongue, at our peril, risk and hazard. ~Voltaire, Dictionnaire Philosophique, 1764

Every human being has a right to hear what other wise human beings have spoken to him. It is one of the Rights of Men; a very cruel injustice if you deny it to a man! ~Thomas Carlyle

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. ~Voltaire

Freedom is the oxygen of the soul. ~Moshe Dayan

"If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear."

Eric Arthur Blair or George ORWELL
British novelist and essayist (1903-1950)

This post is not open to commentary. It is to merely express my disgust when people try to make me shut up. There is freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is essential to mankind. Those who do not believe in freedom of speech do not believe in humanity, do not believe in democracy. I am a firm believer of both, even though they have been challenged before and tried to be silenced.

I started this blog to share my ideas, my beliefs and my thoughts. NO ONE, read it..NO ONE is obligated to think, react and believe what I believe. That is the beauty of individuality. What I do expect in return is RESPECT. I have made the gran effort not to disclose names or images that can negatively affect my family or its members. I tried to mantain things in an anonymous manner.

It seems my posts have offended some and have made others upset. That is totally understandable. I don't expect 'chipper happy go lucky' feedback 100% of the time. I am fine with that. But from that, to expect that I be silenced like some child or some animal, I will not tolerate. I will not allow people to 'threaten' me or 'threaten' my freedom of speech. If u don't like what I write, there's a big red "X" on the right hand corner of your screen you can 'click' on and close. Don't even bother reading. And that'll make everyone happy.

For those who do read and do RESPECT, I thank u, from the bottom of my heart. Yes. I have a heart. Yes. It works. No, it's not the size of a peanut. It's a big heart, and when I allow it to, it holds lots of love for everyone who gives it in return.

Thank you for stopping by. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting.

And for those who don't like it: U know where the "X" is at.
