Did you know that today is the Bill of Rights Day?

In Bill of Rights Day, Tim Lynch reviews how each of the ten admendments is currently treated in the United States today. For example:

The First Amendment says that Congress “shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech.” Government officials, however, insist that they can make it a crime to mention the name of a political candidate in an ad in the weeks preceding an election. They also insist upon gag orders in thousands of federal investigations.

It might be good to review with your children Tim's analysis of all ten amendments.
