What I Would Tell America’s Founding Fathers

Our founding fathers were and still are some of the greatest people in American history. If I were able to tell them anything I would simply say thank you! Thank you for fighting for our freedom; freedom of speech, and freedom of religion. Thank you for giving Americans equality and our life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These are just a few of the things I would say thank you for.

Our freedom of speech means we can express our feelings and ideas without the fear of being suppressed or persecuted. Freedom of speech protects American’s abilities to think and express their thoughts whether they are spoken, written, or filmed. Freedom of religion allows all American citizens the right to freely practice a religion of their choice without conflict or harassment.

Our founding fathers believed that it was a human right for all men to be created equal. We deserve to be treated with equality regardless of religion, gender, or skin color. Equality entitles men, women, and minorities the right to be treated with respect and dignity, the right to vote, and the opportunity to an equal education.

As Americans we have a right to live a life of safety and free from fear, the liberty to make choices for what we believe in, and a right to use our time, talent, and resources to live our lives in a way that we believe will bring us true happiness, as long as it does not interfere with the rights of others. This is what our founding fathers called “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

Our founding fathers wanted us to live a life full of liberty and happiness. They wanted us to all be treated equally, and have the freedom to write or to speak freely about how we feel, and the right to practice any religion that we choose. This is why I would tell these great historical men thank you.
