Monday Must: Speak Out

This man would like us to shelter our children and make them believe the world is a safe and happy place 24/7. We can only do that up to a certain point and to have them find out on their own that it isn’t and not be prepared is far worse than dealing with these subjects now. We can’t ban every book that we disagree with or that makes us uncomfortable.


This is the worst sort of censorship and we cannot allow anyone to silence the words.

Write to the Superintendent or Principal in Republic, MO.

Comment on Scroggins article.

And comment over at Lisa and Laura’s blog.
They are going to donate a copy of Speak to a school or library for every 25 comments that appear on their blog.

Don't be afraid to Speak.


  1. I'm so happy to see how much support is out there on Facebook and the blogosphere. It makes this ludicrous banning and slandering easier to deal with.

  2. I don't like censorship in books at all. I screen my kids books and will, but that's a different story. Have you read Speak? I went to get it yesterday and was hoping it was on Kindle but it's not. =(

  3. Thanks! I'll check this out. I agree, if you don't like a book, don't buy it.

  4. Thanks for the info! Speak is a wonderful book, that show cases real life. We can't hide from the truth.

  5. I'm glad you posted about this. SPEAK is a wonderful book. And yay for Lisa and Laura--what a great idea! I'll go comment now!

  6. I never get this censorship thing. Methinks, I'll do something on it on Wednesday. Stay tuned :)


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
