You Have Rights
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     After the American Revolution, a new government was formed. The constitution created a strong government. But, something was missing. Some states wouldn't agree to the constitution. They wanted the people's rights added to the constitution. The men working to set up the government knew this was the proper thing to do. They agreed to add these rights. The first Congress did just that! It's a good thing there was a way to change the constitution.
 
2     The freedoms and rights Congress added are listed in the Bill of Rights. These are the first ten amendments to the constitution. The rights listed are important freedoms! And, they are yours.
 
3     Amendment 1 says you have freedom of speech, religion, and assembly. You can also appeal to the government to help you. It also contains freedom of the press.
 
4     Amendment 2 grants the right of the people to bear arms.
