Let us not forget those who fought and died so that so many could live. Let us not forget those who fought and died so that so many could freely denounce the liberty they exercise with their disdain for this country. Let us not forget those who fought and died so that so many could sit idly by and let our leaders distort and ignore the history of old and all that led us here. Let us not forget all those who fought and later died so that we could live in freedom.
Whether you believe in this country or not, whether you hold these truths to be self evident, you live beneath the virtuous sacrifice of those who gave so we could have. Their gift is felt when you voice your opinion, when you mark your dissent. When you act out for your cause, when you sit quietly with your statement.
Judge not those who felt the sting of death, pushed forth in the name of freedom. Chastised by some, belittled by others, let us not forget why these things are allowed to be part of our culture. Each must allow for differing idea’s, give way to thought’s we may not agree with. We must be as one for countries sake, or suffer the will of the dammed we shall.
We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.
It will be found an unjust and unwise jealousy to deprive a man of his natural liberty upon the supposition he may abuse it.
Don’t worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition.
My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
There are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.
