Thoughts Today

I will be forever grateful to those who fought for our rights and freedom in this country. But I’m very worried about what is happening right under our noses. Our rights are being eroded away, slowly and methodically. Racial and religious discrimination is on the rise, as well as the inequality of opportunity. I worry for us, for our children and grandchildren, and for the future of The United States of America.

Here are just a few great quotes from a few great men that came to mind this Memorial Day. LET US NOT FORGET.

“Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy forget in time that men have died to win them.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” ~Abraham Lincoln

“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” ~Abraham Lincoln

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” ~John F.Kennedy

“The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil constitution, are worth defending against all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.” ~Samuel Adams

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” ~Ronald Reagan

I hope you’ve had a lovely and safe weekend, my friends.

  1. Those are wonderful quotes and I must say very appropriate for today. I am very partial to the Lincoln one where he says, if we as a country fall, it is because we allowed it to happen and by our own hand. Adding to that, I’m going to quote another brilliant man, Charlie Daniels (lol) when he said “We might have done a little bit of fighting amongst ourselves, but you outside people best leave us alone. Cause we’ll all stick together and you can take that to the bank. That’s the cowboys and the hippies and the rebels and the yanks.” What can I say, I’m a sucker for a great patriotic song with a bit of a sting to it. 😎🤣

    • Thanks. I felt like posting a tribute of sorts to the fallen. Lyrics can be quite touching and yet hit hard, like you said “with a sting” lol. We have had some wise men in this country but I’m not seeing much wisdom these days. We’re headed down a terrible path, I’m afraid. 😦
