Americans used to be willing to die for what they believed in.
When someone screamed “Help Me” people ran to their aid, now they look away and don’t want to get involved because they are afraid they might get hurt or killed. And maybe it’s not just that… Those that are willing to stand up for what is right are sometimes subjected to public ridicule, threats and attacks to their reputations as is well documented by how our police are treated in the media these days.
Perhaps the easiest cure is to go back a simpler time when we were not afraid to meet our maker. It is possible that a lot of this cowardice is prompted by fear of death. People didn’t used to be worried about dying or trying to prolong their lives and their youthful appearances. They considered it a fact of life and were comforted by the belief that God would take care of them.
The job of standing up for what is right does not just belong to our military personnel. If you live in America – it’s your civic duty to stand up and protect our freedoms, our children and our country. Freedom isn’t free, it should cost every one of us who enjoy living in this country.
