During these chaotic times here in our great nation, we thought we’d take a moment and reflect on the freedoms that we all enjoy thanks to those brave men and women who gave their lives for our country.
This Thanksgiving, let us all be thankful that we have freedom of speech and the liberty that allows us to peacefully protest wherever and whenever our voices need to be heard.
This is America. Our voices will always be heard, our freedoms will always be respected.
“In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.”
- Franklin D. Roosevelt
“It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.”
- Dick Cheney
“When an American says that he loves his country, he means not only that he loves the New England hills, the prairies glistening in the sun, the wide and rising plains, the great mountains, and the sea. He means that he loves an inner air, an inner light in which freedom lives and in which a man can draw the breath of self-respect.”
- Adlai Stevenson
“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.”
- Elmer Davis
“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.”
- Malcolm X
“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
- Benjamin Franklin
“The First Amendment is often inconvenient. But that is besides the point. Inconvenience does not absolve the government of its obligation to tolerate speech.”
- Justice Anthony Kennedy
God Bless the USA!
