"We must tell it, teach it, live it, breathe it."
These are the words of Charlton Heston about the Bill of Rights. We now have a generation of children who have no idea the importance of these words for they don't know the Bill of Rights or what they protect.
Unalienable Right - What Does It Mean?
Charlton Heston said, "We must tell it, teach it, live it, breathe it."
These are the words from the man who played Moses, in the 1956 remake of "The Ten Commandments"
NOTE: After posting this video, I received this email.
"I remember when I was young sitting around a camp fire at Nickerson State Park (a camp grounds) on Cape Cod, MA and listening to Mr. Heston read stories from the bible. Our family would go camping there the last two weeks of August and so would Mr. Heston's. He would invite people to come over to his site to sit around the fire as he read Mosses. Mr. Heston will be missed, he was a great man."WJB
Our Founders put into the Declaration Of Independence that "We hold these truths to be self-e evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,..."
And the Court had ruled:
“The very purpose of a Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote; they depend on the outcome of no elections. " (emphasis added)
West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette,
319 U.S. 624, 638 (1943)(Opinion, J. Jackson)
And one of the most important of those INALIENABLE RIGHTS are:
"The right to follow any of the common occupations of life is an inalienable right; it was formulated as such under the phrase "pursuit of happiness" in the Declaration of Independence, which commenced with the fundamental proposition that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This right is a large ingredient in the civil liberty of the citizen."
(italics, the Court's; bold emphasis added)
Butchers' Union Co. v. Crescent City Co., 111 U.S. 746, 762, 4 S.Ct. 652 (1884)
(Justice Field Concurring, joined by JJ. Bradley, Harlan, and Woods)
This is what has been left out of education for the last two to three generations. If America is to survive, it's important to know who we are. "We must tell it, teach it, live it, breathe it."
