What You Hear, What You Don't Hear

Everyone knows Patrick Henry said, "Give me liberty or give me death." That's not the full quote, but it is catchy. One only has to look up the quote to find it in context; maybe. But these days some history books are leaving out some of the "offensive" words around it. Here is the full quote:

"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death."
