We are about to celebrate Independence Day, the day that ended the Revolutionary War. 13 colonies stood up against the mightiest navy in the world to fight for their independence. With little money, and an untrained military they stood up like David against Goliath and won.
If our forefathers had been caught and or we had lost the war everyone that fought against England could have been tried for treason. Many of our founding fathers lost their wealth, had their houses destroyed, lost children to the cause, yet they stood tall and pressed on.
You see they had a vision of what a great country we lived in and they wanted to make sure that the mistakes of other countries wouldn’t happen here. They were God fearing people who knew that He led our country to victory and would watch over our country as long as we remembered that.
They wrote the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, to remind us that it is ‘Government of the people—by the people—and for the people’. That all men are created equal. That we have the unalienable right to the pursuit of happiness, freedom of religion, freedom to prosper as well as the right to own guns (not just to protect ourselves from bad people) but more importantly, protect ourselves from an oppressive government.
So as we celebrate our Independence please think about what is going on now and how important our country and all it stands for is to you. What are you willing to do to ensure that this country continues to follow our Constitution and Bill of Rights?
May God be with you in your decision. Have a grand and glorious day. Your friend & neighbor,
