at what cost???

altered ambitions
At what cost do we give up free speech? I have never been political or an activist, but something happened recently that made me question why I would give up my choice of free speech. I was told not to talk about or mention ****** and that if I did then I would be terminated from my position (not a position that I get paid for, but one that I love to do).

That's imposing on my right to free speech and REALLY is rubbing me the wrong way...but why??? It isn't something that I would have discussed because it really wasn't any of my business and I don't have anyone that I would discuss it with anyway (although DH and mom have definitely heard an earful about it), but not the actual situation that I was told not to discuss.

I am upset about the fact that I am not allowed to discuss it. Why does this person think that they can dictate what I can or cannot say to anyone??? So at what cost am I giving up my free speech??? Is it worth it? I still haven't decided. Quite honestly, this blog post may decide it for me so you can hear my tale of woe tomorrow when I am terminated from my position. *dum-dum-dum...cue the organ music*

Today's creative prompt...use a single word prominantly on a layout today. Practice that free speech that we all have a right to.
