As a citizen and communicator I have many responsibilities. By fulfilling these obligations I earn privileges. I have a responsibility as a citizen to actively communicate in my society. As a communicator, I must strive for clear communication. It is my choice to communicating well, but if I choose not to I don’t deserve the privileges of being a respected citizen.

I can choose not to communicate well and, if I so choose, I don’t think I will earn these privileges. If I fall short of my obligations as a communicator I don’t deserve to be recognized as a citizen.

Being a citizen and communicator are part of becoming a contributing adult to society. Through mistakes and successes in communication, I can improve my abilities and learn to fulfill my responsibilities.
