CSAP Packet

Keep on working on it, and don't forget to restate the question when answering the short answers!

PLN #4

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin, 1759

This quote is the quote that PLN #4 will be answering to. Therefore, the summary will be relatively short (4-6 sentences) and the response will not be incredibly long either. Here are the notes taken for the summary:
