Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no constitution, no law, no court can save it.
– Judge Learned Hand
Today is a special day for our country; a day to celebrate the freedoms that we have been given. Our forefathers were passionate for the cause of freedom; willing to give up their lives for what they believed in.
The generation in which we live is fighting for freedom in other countries, which affects our freedoms in this country. Yet how many freedoms have we given up by our lack of involvement and apathy? Have we given up freedoms so that we can have a little peace? The freedom that we have in this country gives us the power to do what is right in the sight of God; it is not the right to do whatever we please. The freedom we have is worth preserving and defending.
Wake up America! Realize the blessings God has given our country. Don’t waste what we’ve been given. Get involved in your communities. Make sure to vote. Most importantly pray for your leaders. Do not lose what has already been given.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
