To the Editor:

Just a few days ago it was revealed that the Trump Administration placed a gag order on the Center for Disease Control forbidding the agency from using seven words. Many have found it difficult to keep up with the daily attacks from this administration on our institutions that we have become numb. As we enter this holiday season we have much to be grateful for.  Yet now we see some of our basic freedoms which we never thought twice about are now under constant assault. Are the next words to be banned by Trump, words 8, 9, and 10, liberty, freedom, and opportunity?
