Freedoms ~ The Blood was Shed

It is a sad state of affairs when the freedoms our forefathers fought the Revolutionary War for are being taken away year after year by judges who think they have the rights to write law. Every time one of the judges sitting on a high court write another law to make the original law void they are taking away the freedoms for which blood was shed.
In the speech Thomas Jefferson who was one of our founding fathers gave during the opening of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia in July 1776 he expressed deep concern while praying asking for God to “bless our land with honorable endeavor, sound learning, and pure manners.”
Where have we as a nation come? Jefferson in the same speech asked for God to “Endow with the spirit of wisdom those to whom, in your name we entrust the authority of government, that there may be justice…through obedience to your law we may show forth your praise among the nations on earth” All we have to do is turn on the television and watch our society crumble in front of our eyes.
It is imperative for the success of our representative government to prosper we must have a society with a moral character. There is a responsibility that goes along with service to our country. Immoral and overtly evil individuals should be confronted by moral men who will remove them from power.
Our troops fight the battles today so that our tomarrow's can continue to be free. Stop a soldier and tell them thank you. Visit a Veterans center and listen to the stories the men and women have to tell. They fought the fight so we could live the life the way we want. Tell them thank you and next time our flag passes take your hat off and salute. The blood that was shed to keep our flag raised reflects in every soldiers' eyes that has seen battle.
