A Little Reading Can Make a BIG Difference!

Posted by Corey L. Scott | Dec 03, 2021 | 0 Comments

I have a quick question for all of you. What have you been reading these days?

I am willing to bet that everyone reading this has skimmed through at least one Facebook or Instagram post today or consumed some sort of content on the internet. The point I am getting at, and what I really want to know, is if any of you have read this document that I know of. There's a possibility you may have heard of it as well. It is a little document called the United States Constitution.

You may be asking yourself why I would suggest reading the Constitution, or you may be doubtful that a document like this is relevant to your life. The reason I strongly recommend that you read the Constitution is because being familiar with the United States Constitution could really help you if you ever find yourself in a tricky legal situation.

However, the usefulness of this document can only extend so far if you have not read it. If you don't read the Constitution, you cannot heed the information in it. If you are unaware of the information that it contains, you will have a hard time exercising your rights, as there is a chance that you will not know what rights you possess in the first place!

Reading is fundamental and vitally important when it comes to protecting our freedoms and our rights.   Read whatever you want, just be sure to remember to read the Constitution as well. I have at least ten to fifteen free copies in my possession, if you need one, let me know. Take great care and remember, if you have to be guilty of anything, be guilty of greatness.
