When we talk about personal freedom — or that as a nation — it’s important to remember that freedom only comes with effort, vigilance, and fortitude.
Whether it’s liberty we enjoy in the United States and celebrate this week, or freedom from worry and personal struggles, they both require work. Everyday. It doesn’t just happen.
I (for one) forget this simple fact from time to time, especially with respect to my own challenges in daily life. Remember you have to fight for your freedom everyday. It’s up to you. Protect your self, your family, your dreams and goals.
Same with our country: if we want things to change, to be different, hopefully better, we have to fight. Hard. And protect what we believe in, what we hold most dear.
Freedom isn’t free. But it’s worth fighting for.
