Comments on Ashleys Blog

As I was browsing through all my teammates blogs, I came across an article that Ashley blogged about. It was about a 22 year old boy that voiced his opinion about certain topics on his blog and was sentenced to jail for it. He will spend 4 years in jail for expressing how he felt on his own personal blog and his punishments were this severs. I agree with Ashley that we as Americans do not realize how good we have it. We all have started blogs in this class and it is just another form of our freedom of speech and freedom in general to be able to express ourselves in any way we feel appropriate. Hopefully, these countries will be able to move forward in the rights they give their citizens in the future. To read more about this incident go here, or to hear what Ashley said here.
