I love getting emails like this 🙂
I know Independence Day in the U.S. has come and gone, but PLEASE, wherever you are, remember this:
Freedom isn’t free. Someone has paid.
We often don’t appreciate things that are handed to us when others have paid the price.
The bloodstains have dried and been washed clean.
The smell of the pain and smoke in the air has cleared.
The echoes of the throes of agony has been quieted. We are left with the resulting freedom until we forget.
Freedom on the outside nor the inside isn’t free. It never was and never will be.
