Freedoms We Take for Granted

If I want to blog, all I have to do is log in, write down my thoughts, click spell check, and publish.  And you're free to read this entry and countless others across the Internet.

But it's a different story in Cuba.  Access to Yoani Sanchez's blog is blocked there, and even though she has a journalism prize waiting for her in the U.S., Cuba's Communist government will not allow her to travel here to accept it.

This story reminds me of a string of freedoms we have that Cuba's residents don't:  freedom of speech, freedom of the press...  Which freedoms do you think we take for granted the most?
