Celebration Of Service Friday (#7)

“Posterity! you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.”
President John Adams

John Adams’ quote serves as a reminder that whether we choose to serve in the armed forces or not, we owe a debt of gratitude to those who worked to win, preserve and pass on the gifts of liberty and freedom. Many have been military members but there are those who worked diligently for freedom, as civilians, in the realm of ideas as well.  ALL citizens of the United States are responsible for doing the same. We cannot rest on our laurels.  Freedom is a forever fight, one that takes place on the battlefield of ideas long before arms are taken up.  Don’t think that because you’re not in the military you’re excused from duty.  You are expected to show up and you’re expected to work.  It is your responsibility as an American!

It doesn't matter which side of the barrier you find yourself on.  We are all equally responsible for preserving the welfare of this country and for protecting the gifts of liberty we inherited from generations past.
