<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">"Congress cannot make a law that says all Americans have to follow one religion. American citizens have the right to choose their own religion. Citizens can say whatever they want to say in terms of the law. They have the right to write what they want to say. They can gather and peacefully protest. They can go against the government." –<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Bailey Roebling</span></span>

<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">"The First Amendment protects from laws that would step on our right to practice our chosen religion, or from preventing free speech, or from preventing the press from operating, or from presenting people from coming together peacefully, and finally guarantees that we can go to the government." –<span style="color: #000000; font-family: Calibri;">Brady Jones</span></span>
