July 4th, 2021 Tribute

On this 4th of July Holiday weekend, the day set aside to celebrate the founding of this great nation, let us remember those brave patriots, those citizen soldiers, who strove to overcome overwhelming odds to secure for us and for all future generations the blessings of liberty and freedom. Their sacrifice guaranteed us the rights that ensure our continued freedom. Before we just blindly give these rights away or allow them to be rewritten or reinterpreted for someone else’s political or social agenda, let’s stop and think of all those who died to secure those rights and ask ourselves: what do we leave to future generations if we sacrifice the blessings of liberty and freedom today that those who have gone before us fought so hard to defend, promote, and leave to us? What will be left of this great country if we abandon that which has made it great and unique in the world? What will future generations say of our cowardice as compared to the example set by the patriots whose blood was shed so that we might live free?
