American Patriot

Martyr: a person who is killed or who suffers greatly for a religion, cause, etc.

American is a great idea, an idea executed under false pretenses, an idea maintained for some through the oppression of others. Americans who believe in the idea and who have tried to help America live up to its ideals have often been called to sacrifice their lives, even to the point of death. These martyrs are no less patriotic than those who don a uniform…

People must have the desire to get out there, to push and pull, and to never give up, to never get lost in a sea of despair, but to keep the faith.” ~ Congressman John Lewis

Freedom Fighters

I was reminded, once again, while visiting the National Museum of African American History and Culture that Americans of color have fought just as hard and sacrificed just as much as those who would exclude us from claiming America as ours…

Commitment to Freedom

I honor those pursuing the call of freedom in and out of uniform…those committed to making the ultimate sacrifice if asked…those at the forefront of our internal struggle to realize our country’s commitment to freedom… those resisting the daily assault on the freedoms declared by our founders so many years ago…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Freedom is not free; freedom requires commitment.

Inhale Commitment, Exhale Constraint…
Inhale Sacrifice, Exhale Inequality…
Inhale Freedom, Exhale Assault…
