Freedom & The State of the World

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." –Ronald Reagan

Why does it feel as though Pres. Reagan knew something we didn't? Could he have had some inclination that we'd be in the sad state we are in today because of greed and corruption? I certainly don't have all the answers, but I'm tired of sitting on the sidelines, thinking I'm doing all I can by going to the voting booth each November. It's simply NOT ENOUGH! I'm still trying to figure out how to be involved more, so I'm on the lookout for opportunities to make a difference in our government, as meager as my offerring can be for now.

Sorry, this is a weird post...pregnancy brain I guess.

I post weird things all the time and THAT is not a weird post. You are a true patriot and a good citizen. Our country needs all the help it can get.
