“I PREFER DANGEROUS FREEDOM TO PEACEFUL SLAVERY”

Sep 9, 2020 |

USA TODAY  – Three-time Olympic beach volleyball gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings began an Instagram post caption with “This going to be a long post & it’s going to upset some people.”

She was right, especially about the “upset some people” part.

Walsh Jennings wrote how she did not wear a mask while shopping over the weekend:

“I read a quote the other day that shook me – – THIS HAS NOT BEEN ENFORCED, IT’S BEEN CONSENTED TO.

“This statement woke me up & the truth of it has had me obsessing on the matter of how I can mindfully & compassionately stand up for my rights & for the freedoms our constitution has granted us all WITHOUT being reckless or putting anyone else in danger.”

Walsh Jennings said she empathized with those who have lost a loved one, but also wrote

“KNOW your immune system is designed to support you through any illness – we must work support our entire system. I want people to stop living in fear and start living in a way that strengthens themselves body, mind and spirit.”

Walsh Jennings ended her post with a quote attributed to Thomas Jefferson: “I PREFER DANGEROUS FREEDOM TO PEACEFUL SLAVERY”Read more.
