Today is Freedom of Information Day, a celebration dear to my heart.
Since I was a kid, I have been a collector of information – I’m sometimes referred to by my kids as the trivia queen of random facts.
Throughout my various careers, helping people gather and share information has been a central part of what I do.
Politicians and journalists – past and present – from the writers of the US Bill of Rights (first ten amendments to the constitution) to newspaper and media journalists and fact checkers – have worked to protect our rights and provide us with accurate information.
Whether you are giving a speech or writing an article or a book, you are sharing information.
Today is a day to express gratitude for the rights of people at all levels of life to receive and share accurate information without fear of reprisal.

As an aside, if you decide to celebrate with the Irish tomorrow with some green beer, let someone else drive you home.
