The following article was inspired out of love for my country. Whether it is Memorial Day, July 4th or Veteran’s Day, we owe this rebel anthem to our brave military defenders. These words are dedicated to our active military forces and the countless veterans who came before – may your sacrifice and courage never be taken for granted. Indeed, freedom goes far beyond the political spectrum and their means to divide. It’s now time to put aside our differences, to look each other in the eye and work together for a brighter future. We only have one shot at freedom, so let’s make it ring by standing tall – one nation, under God, indivisible…
Freedom Never Dies
What is freedom but a soft whisper from oppression? What is freedom beyond knowing you can vote and not be murdered for your beliefs, the ability to speak with your own voice, to earn your own dollar?
Freedom is quite simple. Freedom is wearing your heart on your sleeve when the chips are down, using your power to spread compassion and courage. Freedom is not forced, it is not beaten into the pavement by faceless thugs, it is not sealed in a bottle filled with kerosene.
I have seen freedom – it is my drug of choice – it flows heavy through my veins. Nobody will ever sacrifice greater than those who came before, their blood upon foreign soil, their bitter resolve to stomp out tyranny. I will never surrender my heart to politicians, never bow before some God that demands violence. I will not be fooled by hidden agendas or silenced by the sinister gears of corruption. Most importantly, I will never apologize for my interpretation of freedom.
Always know who you are, and never be a pawn to circus politics, because the clowns will always leave you naked and hungry. What is freedom? I am freedom, and you can never buy my allegiance. My blood flows in three colors – red, white and blue. How about yours?
