Freedom isn’t Free; you have to fight for it.

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.


  1. Thank you for sharing this Krusty. I think that people need to be reminded of this horrible attack that was perpetrated on this country. And they need to be reminded that others are willing to lay down their own life to save others.

  2. Far too many have forgotten what really happened that day..

    The sacrifice..the courage..the tragedy of this day should never be forgotten by anyone.

    I only hope that whatever gets built on the site of the reaches out higher and farther than the WTC did..and once and for all show the world that we do come back..bigger and stronger than before.

    God bless us all...

  3. Remember the Maine!!!!
