The Horrors of The Mis-Sent Email

 

We’ve all done it — sent an email to people we didn’t intend to send it to. There’s nothing quite like that sinking feeling just after you hit “send” and realize you’ve definitely copied in the wrong people. Despite being told time and again to always, always, always check the to, cc, and bcc fields, it’s a very common occurrence. Mind you, we bet your email catastrophe wasn’t as bad as some of these zingers.

Have you ever wondered what protects your rights to email your Congressman and tell them exactly what you think? It’s the First Amendment of the U.S. constitution—it doesn’t just protect free speech, it also has a neat little section called “The Right to Petition,” that says, “Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech… or the right of the people to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Although we may take it for granted, that “redress of grievances” is exactly what lets you email your Congressman and share your thoughts, concerns, and ideas. The founding fathers couldn’t have dreamed how much technology would change the world. 1791 may have seen you putting quill to parchment, but the principles and practice of how to write to congress are pretty much the same as they were 200 years ago.

Churchill famously said, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.” While democracy isn’t perfect, it is there to represent us—that means we can voice our thoughts, ideas, and opinions to our elected officials.
