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 and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
Ronald Reagan, March 30, 1961
Today I think of the silent victors over Communism, many of them filling mass graves. We stand on the shoulders of giants, most of them known but to God. By their lives and sacrifices they proved the essential truth of Man that a thirst for freedom is put in the soul of each of us by God. Governments can tyrannize over the sons of Adam and the daughters of Eve for a time, but they can never destroy that thirst.
