Express your thoughts, if you can…
Are you permitted to express yourself in your current environment? Will anyone perceive your expression? Will they act positively on it?
Are you capable of expressing yourself? Must it be vocalized, or can you use signs, gestures, or writing? Again, will anyone perceive your expression, and will they act positively on it?
Are you right in expressing yourself? Could you cause undue harm? Is it your thought, or is it a thought you’ve explored, is it factual?
In America, thanks to the first amendment to the constitution, you have the right to express yourself. But please, America, let’s express ourselves responsibly, or that right may disappear under the guise of enforcing safe expressions.
Ask those who may not express themselves without fear of reprisal.
Speak up, responsibly.
