Yerling’s reflection

This assignment has thought me how cautious you need to be with the words you use. I was surprised to see how the newspapers would clarify that they were using a certain word for the purpose of the article. This made me realize that it is always good to be cautious and to clarify because even though we all have the freedom of speech there are certain words that can be offensive and therefor you may be breaking the law without realizing it.

I also learned more on how to protect myself from being a victim of abusive speech. Just because we have the freedom of speech doesn’t mean someone can hurt me; when something like that happens then I could be protected under the first amendment and use my rights appropriately.

Here’s the list of my articles:
