Sample letter, one friend sent out to all in the list thus far.
- Laura Bell To the staff of Southern Oregon University:
It has been brought to my attention that there seems to be an issue with students disbursing copies of the US Constitution.
May I remind you ALL of you what the first amendment is:
The First Amendment (1791) prohibits Congress from obstructing the exercise of certain individual freedoms: freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, and freedom of petition.
Apparently your educational institution appears to have forgotten that the US Constitution is America's guiding principles. Have you and the educational staff at this college chose to ignore the first Amendment? Instead of threatening your students to stop their actions with regards to the Constitution, you should have been applauding them for taking the initiative to exercise their rights as American's. Many young people do not have a clue as to what the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights are. You should be honored that you have such bright individuals that stepped forward to inform those lacking knowledge of their country to assist in furthering their education regarding the country we all live in and prosper from.
It causes me great concern that educators would have the audacity to "call" these students on what they were and ask them to cease their activities. This is their right, as an American citizen, to exercise their freedoms. I am appalled and ashamed at the outcome of your university's request. Further, to make national headlines over this incident brings further shame to your college.
SHAME on you and shame on the Professor's involved in this.
A free American and proud of it
