This week is “Celebrate Freedom Week” across our state. The Preamble states …

The Preamble uses the phrase, “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” What does this mean? The natural right to life means that individuals, and not the government, have control over their lives. Liberty means individuals have the right to be free. Being free would later be more fully explained in the Bill of Rights with ideas that included freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of peaceable assembly, freedom of religious exercise, and freedom to petition the government. Finally, “the pursuit of happiness” is whatever individuals define as making them happy. Individuals have the right to try to achieve goals that will lead to their personal happiness. Limits on these rights exist when one person tries to interfere, or limits, the natural rights of another.”
