Who's Your Hero?


My brother Raymond Nalpant. He is a New York City Police Officer, who was hurt 1 1/2 years ago while on duty. He had to retire early. However, he was in New York City 2 hours after our Sept. 11th tragedy. He walked across the 59th Street Bridge, went directly to Cornell Hospital to volunteer (he's going to school to become a nurse), and was then volunteering at ground zero for 3 weeks. He lost many good friends and did what ever he could to help the city in thoses tragic weeks. He actually doesn't think he's a hero. He says he's just doing his job to help man-womankind. But you know what....He truly is my hero!!

Your Question


Q: What was Benjamin Franklin's perspective on The Bill of Rights?

A: Ben Franklin was pleased with the Congress and the Bill of Rights, stating, Congress had done its work "with a greater degree of temper, prudence and unanimity than could well have been expected, and our future prospects seem very favorable." Franklin believed in the freedom of the press which is guaranteed in the First Amendment. He was also against slavery. Although the Bill of Rights does not address the issue of slavery, the Thirteenth Amendment abolishes slavery in the United States. Read a book about Ben Franklin. Read more about the The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, and The Bill of Rights.
