While thinking about freedom, what it means, what it takes to defend it and who and what it needs protecting from I created the term WAL-QAEDA.
A few days earlier I had taken action to protect my right to free speech from Wal-Mart who had threatened to take legal action against me for expressing my opinion about them. The news had just broke about the issue and I was somewhat overwhelmed by media attention. I had even started to receive hate mail, which took some getting used to. I was worried about what was at stake and what the possible outcome might be. I started to wonder if standing up for my rights was going to be worth all the trouble.
After some thought I considered the dear price that has been paid by so many to secure the freedoms that we enjoy today. Throughout my life I have been fortunate enough to know many people who have put their own lives on the line to ensure that we all have these rights. With many men and women currently overseas risking their own safety for our country, my plight was put into perspective. I thought about whom they were fighting and added a “W”, Wal-Qaeda.com was born. The very least that I could do was to stand up to Wal-Mart and fight against a threat to freedom of speech.
The best way to protect freedom is to exercise it. With this in mind I created several designs which CafePress.com has agreed to produce. Please visit my CafePress Store and show the world what you think about protecting your freedoms from Wal-Mart.
