In the beginning of school, I was introduced to this year. I looked up two of the amendments that I felt Americans abuse because we don’t recognize the responsibilities that come with those rights which are the first and second amendments.

Not only in America but also in places such as ancient Greece and England .Ticorious gathered information on how Americans today have taken advantage of the responsibilities that have come with the right responsibly.
