On November 11th the United States stops to honor those who have given of themselves, all through our rich history, to maintain the freedom we so many times take for granted.
Whether it was in peace, or wartime, millions of men and women have served this great nation, to maintain that freedom. In a world that is slowly allowing our freedoms to be challenged, and to be slowly taken away, these brave men and women remind us that those freedoms came at a price. We must continue to pay that price to preserve them.
This Republic stands on the principle of being blessed by God, and that all, not just a specified group, were made in the image and likeness of God. When we are not willing to stand up for these ideologies, then we will fall for the ideology of self-glory, authority and power. These ideologies seek to undermine these principles. They hover over how each of us live and think, all the while putting God aside.
As we remember the great sacrifices that each of these Veterans gave to hold up those precious freedoms of this Republic, let us all stay alert to those who strive to take away those inalienable, these absolute, undeniable rights, for their vain glory, their self-promoting, never-ending quest for power over all of us, and fight for the ideology that says that we all have the right to life, the right of speech, the right to pursue happiness, the right to worship our God, the right to be an American. These rights we hold sacred, for we are and will fight to always be one nation, under God, indivisible, inseparable, with liberty and justice for all.
