The last few days have been tough. I've had a hard time coming up with material I felt was worthy commenting on. With a keen awareness of what is happening to our country, I have become very sensitive to all the negative press I've been seeing. At a point, you just need to shut down for a bit.
In history, there are lessons learned. Thomas Paine said, "Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one." Maybe that's what I have been feeling. That is why you haven't heard from me in a few days, but I'm back now.
While surfing the net looking for something I could share with everyone, Stuart Shepard provided this wonderful, albeit short, video. Evidently, Stuart had the same sentiment I did and felt a need to step back for a bit and remember what it is we are all working so hard to try and preserve. Please enjoy this video and remember how wonderful our country is, and how hard others in the past have fought to preserve our liberties and way of life. May this generation live up to the challenge.
