Where is there dignity in silence? One time, I got in a disagreement with my mom. My mom kept telling me how I was wrong and how I shouldn't have done what I did but in my opinion I was right. I didn't want to lie. I listened to my mom but then talked back because... the first amendment, freedom of SPEECH. I then, got in trouble. I think, if I had stayed quiet then my mom would of given me more respect.
