As I sat down to figure out what to write today, the calendar on my desk caught my eye. Today isn’t just another normal day, today is the 7 year anniversary of the September 11th attacks, a series of events that forever will change our country.
What I’ve learned over the years is that Freedom is a commodity much like gold. Freedom is scarce and only can be found in a few countries. We happen to be blessed to live in a country in which it is abundant; in fact it’s so abundant that we want to share our freedom with the rest of the world.
Unfortunately there are evil forces in the world that don’t want to just stop America from sharing the blessings of freedom; they want to destroy the main source of freedom in the world, the United States of America.
We are just a few months away from electing a new President. The outcome of the election will determine the course for our Nation, and the standing of the world’s most precious commodity, freedom. There are some who believe that America needs to take a step back in global affairs, they want to negotiate a “peace” with Hamas and counties like Iran and North Korea.
I have never understood the viewpoint of appeasement. Freedom has never been, nor ever will be the result of a negotiation. Freedom is fought for and defended those brave men and women who wear the uniform of the United States Military.
