Against Banned Books (Please Spread This Pic & The Text)

Book Banning is such an awful thing,... parents who want to care for their kids challenge books and then... they perhaps ar banned... Banned Book week is a great celebration... celebrate freedom of speech and press is what they want to say... and these parents who "care" for their kids i cant understand them... they let them watch tvtvtv and play violent videogames but books shall be difficult? weird ^^
