“True patriotism hates injustice in its own land more than anywhere else.” – Clarence Darrow
It is easy to take freedom for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.
America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand. Harry S. Truman
Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed or else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower
How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy! -Thomas Jefferson
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. -Abraham Lincoln
On this Independence Day, let us remember the sacrifices that have been made for our freedom. Let us also remember that America is not defined by the politicians who run it, but the people who love it. If you love your country, take a stand for freedom!! It is our right, our responsibility to defend our freedoms, our country, not to just sit back and watch it all be taken from us. Too many men and women have died in defending this country to just let our freedoms keep slipping away. Be proud to be an American, and be heard. When our freedoms are gone, it will be very, very difficult to get them back. Can you imagine life without all the freedoms you enjoy now? The right to travel where and when you want to, the right to buy what you want, the right to say and do what you want, the right to teach your children what you value in life, the right to choose the health care you want for you and your family, the right to live where you want, the right to work where you want to work. Can you imagine if each of those rights, freedoms where taken from you? They easily can be taken, and quickly, especially when good people sit back and do nothing, say nothing. Stand up, be heard, be proud to be an American!
