Freedom Is Fragile

“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” ~ Ronald Reagan, from his first inaugural speech as governor of California, January 5, 1967

We really don't know how much we lost the day Mr. Reagan pasted. He truly helped us as a republic to keep our feet firmly planted in our Constitution. God Bless his soul.
