The Power of the Individual

Today we remember those who sacrificed all so that we may live in freedom.  Whatever your beliefs are about our current conflict, know that you can hold all those individual thoughts...and voice them...because of the sacrifice of so many others.

It may sound like hyperbole...but it's not.  I've had the fortune to serve alongside heroes, and I'm a better man for it.

Yet, you don't have to wear a uniform to make a difference.  That is also an unmistakable truth.  A regular reader of this blog asked "how are things going to change" in this country, whether it be economic, social, or political.

"With the actions of the individual," I responded.  People can't wait to "join a movement", they have to be willing to be the first in line.

Example:  A 17 year old decided that those buried at Arlington deserved better than our own bureaucrats gave our heroes.  Amazing.  The power of the individual.

You see, I'm not saying anything new.  It's already been said.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

Honor our fallen and honor an individual who stood up first...visit the website.  Nice job, Ricky.
