[Error: unknown template qotd]The dissemination of ideas is what keeps a person, and a society, free. Just as courage is "rightly esteemed as first of  human qualities because it is the quality that guarantees all others", so freedom of speech is the first of personal freedoms.
But freedom of speech is NOT just the freedom to speak, it is the freedom to HEAR; to hear the voice raised against injustice, to hear the cry of the soul in bondage, to hear the words of those who fight oppression with truth.

It is the ability to say "I matter" and have that statement be true.

And it is endowed to us from our Creator by our mere existence; no government, no leader, no court grants it to us. It always HAS, and will always BE our birthright as human beings.

Colt 1911A1 with plenty of ammo, M1917 trench knife as back-up


Duh

As to why; I qualified Expert on a 1911 back in my Army days, have owned one since I was 18, go to the firing range with it as often as I'm able, and am thoroughly familiar with it. The trench knife makes for a good back-up because the triangular blade will punch through skull into the putrescent zombie brain, thus eliminating it. QED

Watching JFK's funeral. I would have been about 2 years old. I didn't know what was happening, but I remember the room the TV was in, and seeing my sisters and mom crying. It was their crying that made it memorable.

I just think it's sad that a family can be torn apart by something as simple as a pack of wolves.

Interesting that quite a few people find the mere asking of this question "US-centric", are "annoyed", or think even asking the question is "ignorant"
I'm interested in hearing what people from other countries or cultures think on a variety of subjects, including this one. Had the question been about British Prime Ministers, I wouldn't have immediately gotten up in arms and thought it "Anglo-centric" or biased or ignorant. I would have either stated my opinion, or ignored it, and gone on about my day.

I'm also cheered to see so few "JFK" responses to this.

-EDIT-
Apparently even suggesting that asking this question in itself, and starting a dialogue with people all over the world, is not entirely a bad thing is "ethnocentric" and enough to get one labelled a "priveleged white male" from people who think they are PRIVELEGED to sit in judgement and put labels on people they don't know. Also a free and honest discussion is BAD if that discussion is about the US? I guess I simply don't understand closed-mindedness.
*scratches head*
I understand the point that this question is, in itself, US-centric, but what is stopping people from posting questions about other places or cultures and starting an open discussion? Isn't that how people learn about one another?

I'm not sure of the single longest, but I'm damned sure the longest series is "Song of Ice and Fire" by George RR Martim.

"Gulag Archipelago" maybe? and "One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich" is probably close to the shortest. So longest and shortest are both by Solzhenitsyn?
