Opinion

My opinion

I think that people should definitely be able to speak freely on what they think. without freedom of speech many people would be unhappy. It would be hard to run our country without ideas and differences spoken. I think that people are aloud to speak freely in a positive and negative way. I think if someone wants to curse at you it should not be a big deal. But, If someone threatens that should be against the law for protection of your safety.
