Let Us Not Forget

"These are the times that try menís souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and women. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. "

Thomas Paine - The Crisis - 1776

Below is the link to T. Paines works which served to ignite the american revouloutionary war.

Charles Kuralt who was a fly fisherman, would read the Declaration of Independence out loud to his family on each Fourth of July as a family tradition. Probably not a bad idea for us to adopt either.

Have a great holiday and lets not forget how this great country started giving us the freedoms we have and now need to defend further.
