Some times we take things a bit too much for granted. Liberty’s probably at the top of that list.
We take for granted that our property rights exist. We take for granted that (most) of our fellow citizens will follow the rules of law. We take for granted our rights to speak, assemble, and worship as we choose. Many people in the world don’t have these liberties. We do because others before us made the necessary sacrifices to give us these gifts.
So the next time you start to whimper about what a rough life you have, consider those less fortunate in the world who aren’t living in a nation founded on the principles of liberty.
With that in mind:
Do you appreciate the liberty we have?
As always, thanks for the time.
