Never Lose Your Freedom
I absolutely love my country and the amazing freedom we enjoy. In my opinion, the United States of America is the greatest country in the world.
It is this pride and love of country is why I was willing to join the U.S. Army and literally, sacrifice everything if that is what happened. I love these United States so much that I still get goose bumps when hearing the National Anthem and patriotic songs. The 4th of July is such a great day and the opportunity to celebrate our independence and the freedom to live the life that we choose to live.
Please take today as an opportunity to reflect on what others have done for us to give us this great life.
I really like this version of the Star Spangled Banner that is performed by Madison Rising.
I know what it took to form the Constitutional Republic that we are able to enjoy. I have seen war and conflict. It is not enjoyable. It is not something to be taken lightly. Unfortunately, military action is sometimes necessary and, to out benefit, our Founding Fathers did what it took to obtain our independence as a nation. This established the foundation to make our country whatever we want it to be.
When observing the actions of my fellow citizens, I do not see the pride that we once had. It has been almost 15 years since the U.S. was attacked in the worst possible way. Following the terrorist attacks on our country, there was a dynamic surge of Americans who were proud and wanted to show the world that America is a great nation. Where has that gone? I see people leaving their hats on during the National Anthem. There are people who think that letting other nations overwhelm us with immigrants is a great idea.
What happened to America? What can be done to regain the national pride we once had in our country?
WE, the people hold the key to our freedom.
There is infinite freedom available for those who are willing to do what it takes. I do not see a scenario where armed conflict is necessary. We do not need another civil war. If you truly would like to never lose your freedom, stand up and make a difference.
While not my thing, I believe that the legalization of marijuana for recreational use is the greatest example of the power that the individual states posses to create the state they want to be. There is a precedent set to allow individual states to do what they want. The federal government decided that marijuana is illegal and yet there is no enforcement of federal law occurring in these states.
Making the conscious decision to fight for what you believe in and to maintain your freedom is the only way that we will be able to maintain the life that we enjoy. Start at the local level and work your way up. Find your representatives and find out what they stand for and how they are representing you. The grassroots efforts of everyday Americans is what will make the difference.
Will you Never Lose Your Freedom?
More than our freedom here and now, what freedom will you enjoy in eternity? Jesus Christ made the ultimate sacrifice and paved the way for you to enjoy ultimate freedom and spend eternity in heaven.
John 3:16 (New Living Translation)
16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
Romans 10:9-13 (New Living Translation)
9 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. 11 As the scripture tells us, "Anyone who trusts in him will never be disgraced." 12 Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him. 13 For "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
