Happy Fourth of July!
Hundreds of thousands have died defending that freedom since and I’m forever grateful.
We must never take their sacrifice lightly and we must remember to always protect the freedoms for which many have sacrificed everything.
In the words of the great leader George Washington (via Eric Metaxas, author of 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness)
Let me entreat you, gentlemen, on your part, not to take any measures which, viewed in the calm light of reason, will lessen the dignity and sully the glory you have hitherto maintained… Let me conjure you, in the name of our common country, as you value your own sacred honor, as you respect the rights of humanity, and as you regard the military and national character of America, to express your utmost horror and detestation of the man who wishes, under any specious pretenses, to overthrow the liberties of our country, and who wickedly attempts to open the floodgates of civil discord and deluge our rising empire in blood.
Never take it for granted.
United we stand.
