The First Amendment was adopted on December 15, 1791 as the first of ten amendments that make up the Bill of Rights. One of the most important parts of the First Amendment is the freedom of speech which protects citizens from punishment from the government for what they say or write. They are protected from all government agencies at any level. Our essay this year, would like students to answer the question: What does freedom of speech mean and why is it important?
