"Americans are very good at claiming rights; we are not always so ready to recognize our responsibilities. Our rights of citizenship include the right to vote, to be protected by the rights of the American Constitution, and to be treated equally in the law. But what are our responsibilities as citizens?"

-- Executive Director of the Aspen Institute Communications and Society Program, Charles Firestone, on "The Responsibilities of Citizenship" (Hat tip to Mikerzz)
