Medford, NY, December 24, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Yesterday, Medford Multicare Center celebrated Bill of Rights Day. The Bill of Rights, the collective name for the first ten amendments, was created to assure the anti-federalists, such as Patrick Henry and Samuel Adams, that the federal government was not a limitless power. The Bill of Rights protects many of personal freedoms of all Americans. Without the precedence of the Bill of Rights, amendments such as limiting the president’s term, inability to deny voting rights based on race, and women’s right to vote may not have come to pass.
The Bill of Rights include:
Amendment 1: Freedom of speech, press, and religion.
Amendment 2: The right to bear arms.
Amendment 3: Protection of homeowners from quartering troops.
Amendment 4: Protection against unreasonable search and seizure.
Amendment 5: Protection against double jeopardy and self-incrimination.
Amendment 6: Right of a prompt trial by a jury of peers and rights of accused.
Amendment 7: Rights to trial by jury in civil cases.
Amendment 8: Protection from cruel and unusual punishment.
Amendment 9 - Protection of rights not explicitly stated in the Bill of Rights
Amendment 10 - States rights and the power allotted to all states.
“Bill of Rights Day is a time to celebrate our United States citizenships. Our personal freedoms are explicitly stated in the law thus assuring our continued freedom and protection. While we enjoy many individual rights, it is important to remember that there are many countries in which citizens do not enjoy the same assurances from their governments,” says Daniel Monahan, administrator at Medford Multicare Center.
