The First Amendment gallery celebrates the freedoms of Religion, Press, Assembly, To Petition, and Speech.
They were designed as pyramids that depicted key moments from the origins of the freedom, to pivotal points in the evolution of the freedom, to modern issues challenging or highlighting the freedom today.
An adjoining wall held a mural collage of examples where issues around the Freedom of Speech made the news.
I was born on a bitterly cold end of January night in the year 1961. It was seven years to the day after the birth of Oprah Winfrey, and one year before the death of Robert Frost on that same day. Cool associations both.
I was the first child of older parents (my mother was 42). I love the color yellow. I am single, and fascinated with life.
