In celebration of Independence Day, salutations to the many brave men and women who serve this great country by protecting it's peoples' freedoms and rights. All, including members of local, state, and federal law enforcement, armed forces, justice and truth seekers, interpreters, analyzers and scholars devoted to deciphering rules of law, and those who valiantly and fiercely fight to protect the legacy of our founding fathers, are worthy of recognition. These protected rights are meant to be passed on to our future generations. Many people defending our rights have been challenged, disrespected, ridiculed, and ostracized, yet, they continue on with their important mission. Too many have sacrificed their own lives. Without the strength of the warriors of freedom, we would not enjoy the liberties which have been granted us.
One thing is for certain; that we must not take freedom for granted. It is precious and fragile. As Americans, it is our duty to preserve freedom, and to gather information from appropriate, credible resources, founded on fact. Only then can we form unbiased and informed decisions. People in other parts of the world are not so fortunate - they are not able to live the way they want to, nor are they able to express their own opinions without facing serious consequences.
Take a moment to reflect on the value of the freedom offered in the greatest nation in the world, and also, on the courage, valor, and perseverance, of the warriors of freedom.
