Soap Box

Ok, so here is my little soap box. I have really mixed emotions and feelings about this photo. I really like the photo, but at the same time, it saddens me. I am LDS and I am 100% behind the building of temples across the world. I love my religion and love the temple. However, I am saddened by the sign. NOT because it is a "free speech zone" but by the fact that we have to have signs to remind us of our Constitutional right. I support building structures on private property, but it is unfortunate that we have to be reminded of our freedoms. Freedom of speech is one of the great blessings we have living in the United States. I guess that the sign may just be to tell people where the private property for the Church ends and where public property starts.......yeah, that's it :)
