Freedom isn’t free. It’s one thing to declare it, and another to fight for it. If you have freedom, remember to value it and be prepared to defend it.
It’s easy to forget that those who signed the Declaration of Independence were essentially making themselves into outlaws, risking everything they had, losing businesses and families and maybe their lives. When they signed, they all realised that,
“We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”
—Benjamin Franklin at the signing of the Declaration of Independence
