Today is memorial day folks. And we here at Wise Conservatism *the blog* Wise Conservatism’s Videoside Chats *on You Tube* and Wise Conservatism Radio *heard on Blog Talk Radio* wish to thank you for letting us into your lives, and also to wish you all a Happy and Safe Memorial Day.
Today, for most of us, it is a holiday, in remembrance of all those who have sacrificed everything for our freedoms throughout the history of this great nation. America is a nation that has so many great things for her citizens, that we have people who will sacrifice their very lives, so that we can all continue to live in the freedoms and liberties that just living here gives us.
Don’t you realize just how great that is? Don’t you realize just how great a nation this is, and why so many would die to preserve her? To me, I love the quote: “Only two have ever volunteered to die for you. One is Jesus Christ, and the other is the American Soldier.”
This country, as great as she is, holds for us the ideals of freedom and liberty, and we have to remember that freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. The main reason that the fight for freedom is an ongoing thing. There will always be those out there who hate us, just because we are free to do what we want. And no matter what we do for them, they will always hate us.
During the last century the entities that have tried to take this away from us are the Communists, who were essentially made a non-entity through Reagan, and now terrorism, which we are currently fighting with our brave military, who are over in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran and anywhere else they may be stationed. They deserve our utmost respect and love folks. They are on the front lines, sacrificing their youth and their very lives to allow us to celebrate holidays, and live in this great country as free people.
So, why, I ask you, do we constantly vote in politicians whose only aim is to take those preciously paid for freedoms away from us? That is something that has plagued me since I can’t remember when…..and being 59 this year, that is a long time to look back and reflect.
With that to think about my friends, welcome to America. Love her, protect her and keep her free. God Bless you all, and have a very Happy Memorial day.
May God bless our efforts to help get America back, and put God back into our country.
God, Bless America. Bless Americans. And Bless us to start using more common sense.
