The Americans Who Risked Everything  

Monday, July 04, 2005

On this day, we celebrate our freedom. During this time of war, we are reminded every day that freedom comes to us at a price. We are reminded of those who fought and died for our freedoms, as well as those who lived to lead the way. Even those who survived the Revolutionary War paid dearly for having supported it.

Instead of trying to put my own thoughts together in the brief time that I have today, I submit to you (if Donny can handle the "sentence structure") a speech given by Rush Limbaugh, Jr. (El Rushbo's father) on the sacrifices made by the Founding Fathers just so that we could have the freedoms we all hold dear.

The sacrifices these people made in the name of freedom for future generations of Americans should not go unrecognized, since It takes blood, sweat, and tears to purchase freedom.

Of course, nothing worth having is ever without cost.
