COMPILED BY JENNIFER J. HEWETT Georgia glimpses • Greatest Generation. The Veterans Council of Chatham County is honoring World War II veterans at a free ceremony Nov. 7 at 3 p.m. in Savannah where officials will unveil a new walkthrough monument dedicated to the heroes who served during the war. Veterans associations, businesses and nationwide donors have contributed more than $720,000 toward the monument as well as purchasing engraved memorial bricks that will accompany the monument along Savannah’s riverfront. For more on the weekend’s festivities or to make a donation, visit www.yourww2hero.com. • Honoring armed forces. Staffers at Roosevelt’s Little White House Historic Site in Warm Springs will be collecting photographs of those who have served, or are serving, in our nation’s armed forces to adorn their Honor Trees during the Christmas season. Drop off copies of photographs (not the originals), with a memorial message written on the back on Dec. 4-5. Visit www.georgia stateparks.org/littlewhitehouse or call (706) 6555870 for details. • See the tree!

Liberty notes Religious freedom in the First Amendment In the July 2010 issue in “Viewpoint” [page 5], Georgia EMC President/CEO Paul Wood suggested a program to educate citizens about our Constitution. “Liberty notes,” a regular highlight, will serve to fulfill this mission in GEORGIA Magazine. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” —First two clauses from the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution The first 10 amendments to the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights, include freedoms cherished by all Americans. The First Amendment begins with two clauses that secure religious freedom. The Founding Fathers believed in freedom of conscience, that everyone should be free to follow their own preferences in matters of More online at www.georgiamagazine.org religious faith. They also did not want an official state church for their new nation. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion” is known as the Establishment Clause. It plainly states that Congress cannot pass a law that respects one church or religious group over another. The phrase “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof” is known as the Free Exercise Clause. This says that Congress cannot pass a law that would interfere with the freedom of churches or religious groups to worship or practice their faith. —Jim Jess web exclusive For more about religious freedom, see page 42C of the November 2010 digital edition online at www.georgiamagazine.org.
