As we celebrate America's Independence Day, let's stop to think about what freedom means. As we take a day off to enjoy that freedom, let's not forget how we got here. 232 years ago, a group of patriots put their lives at stake by signing a piece of paper. Those men, our founding fathers, knew the risk, but more importantly, they knew what was at stake if they did nothing. Our forefathers set out for this land to escape tyranny and a strong government hand. Let us not, so very soon after they founded this great nation, seek to return to that very tyranny from which they fled. We the people, the free people, can and should control the destiny of our country. Today as so many seek a great leader to follow, a grand figure who will rise up to take us to the next level, let us not forget that it is we who chart the course, WE who ought to lead. Free men and women, stand up; take action. Do not look to a politician to heal our wounds. It is we who will endure the hardships, weather the storms, and in the end, remain standing - proud. Let us not forget at this time why we are still free. Men and women give their lives each day that we may live as free people. Our armed forces sacrifice all so that we, never again will be forced to live under tyranny and oppression. Live free. Give thanks. And never forget.
Sometimes it takes a few tries.
A Drum Major for Justice... A Drum Major for Peace... A Drum Major for Righteousness... Remembering Dr. King, a man who lived and died for that one cause he believed in, that one cause he knew in his heart of hearts to be right as he fought for a better world. For him it wasn't about anything else but that promise that was bestowed upon this nation, that all men... that all people are created equal, and in that, in a motel in Memphis 40 years ago, his crumbled body laid on the floor, the ultimate sacrifice for that Promised Land he knew laid just over the horizon. He understood of the fragile nature of freedom and liberty but he also understood that America was built on noble principles, amongst them that all men... all people... are created equal and that, amongst that, the rights endowed upon us by our Creator can not be given or taken by the powers of men but they are for each of us to live and die for. He understood that we had an incomplete understanding of what freedom meant, that our understanding, it evolved with the years, and he demanded we move forward together to a better world. He would never see it but in that came the realization he wasn't just working for himself but for his children to grow up in a world different than he did, that all of our children might grow up in that world, and find peace in the limitless potential and possibility of this great and noble Republic, that we may all cash that check of of liberty signed so many generations before by our founders and carried forth as a torch of freedom unto a brighter tomorrow. May he rest in Peace, free at last.
Let's all get together and solve the world's problems! Yes, we can!
