Write Your Own Bill of Rights

The Founding Fathers included freedom of speech, religion, and the press, among others. They also made sure citizens were free FROM certain things, such as searches and seizure of property.

If you were writing a Bill of Rights today, are there any rights you would add or exclude? What you like to be free from today?

Send us your comments about changes you would make to the Bill of Rights and why? We will printed selected submissions.

If you cannot attend a guest's live interview, you may submit your questions in advance. A selection of these questions will be used during the interview. A transcript will be posted here a few days after the interview. Kids: Ask your parents or teachers for approval before you submit anything to us, and read our Privacy Policy Statement.
