Constitutional freedoms make our lives better because they give us the freedom to express ourselves in many ways. Freedom of Speech is one constitutional freedom that protects our right to say what we want without fear of punishment. We can write and print newspapers expressing a point of view. We can also meet in large groups to talk. Having the freedom of speech in America makes life easier. We can express our thoughts and ideas openly. We can believe in God without being told not to. Having the Constitutional Freedom to speech makes me happy knowing I live in America.
