First Amendment

Freedoms, Petitions, Assembly
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What does this mean??
The first amendment is what gives us our freedom to practice what ever religion we choose as well as freedom to say what we wish. It also gives us the freedom to print whatever in our media.
What does this coexist picture mean?
This picture captures the meaning of first amendment. Each letter represents a different religion or belief and that we should all live together peacefully. If it weren't fro the first amendment we would not be able to choose what we believe, but luckily we can.
