It is Independance Day. People are blowing off Fire works, driving here and there, visiting family, big Barbicues, time at the lake and all in all just having a good time.
This is the day when we celebrate Freedom. It means a lot to us now, it seem now, more than ever before. Our economy is struggling, jobs scarce, and there is fear of yet another resession. But somehow, we just keep shugging along. Why? Well because of this great experiment of freedom. As long as we Americans focus on what it means to be an American, then there is no doubt we will understand what it is to be free.
As long as we are able to rise up, no matter what from the worst of circumstances and as a nation, recover, respond and move on, we will be free. And as long as we as Americans are alway vigilent, and prepared to do what it takes, then we can not help but to remain free.
Yes there are those who define democracy as their right to do what they think is best for America and would as a result take rights away, and restrict our freedoms. All in the interest of the Public Good of course, but, as long as we the American People, rise up, ever vigilent, and respond, then we will remain free.
We must therefore, never forget who we are. What we are all about, what we represent, and use our free voice to advocate for Freedom, and Justice. That means no matter what, we The American people must always protect the freedom of speech. That freedom, the voices you hear in the public square. The cries you hear in Demonstrations of positions of which we might disagree, or of those of which you might agree with. must be protected as a sacrad honor.
Because my friends, the moment We The People, allow anyone to begin taking the Freedom of Speech away, then we are allowing the very freedom by which we stand, the very freedom that is the corner stone of our democracy to be removed. In doing that we begin to allow our most cherrished right to disapear. Independance!
Happy 4th………God Bless America ………. And The Independance For Which She Stands!
