The following letter was taken from the Patriot Post’s Special Edition for Independence Day. The author is a patriot currently serving in Afghanistan. Please give his remarks a few moments of your time as we celebrate our independence and liberty today. I would also encourage my readers to lift up a prayer for America’s brave men and women currently serving in our military to protect our beloved Republic. May we never take our freedom for granted. God bless!
“All that I have, and all that I am and all that I hope to be in life I am now ready to stake upon it; and I leave off as I began, that live or die, survive or perish, I am for the declaration.” – John Adams at the signing of the Declaration of Independence
Wisdom from the Warfront — Enemies Foreign and Domestic
“As an officer who faces combat challenges daily, and who has experienced my share of heartache in defense of our great nation in accordance with my oath, it pains me to see our elected ‘leaders’ so willfully defy their oaths to support our Constitution. But, war has taught me that we just take today at our best, because we never know what tomorrow will bring.
The seemingly insurmountable battle to salvage what is left of American Liberty simply means God will provide a great movement and great leaders to get the job done in His timing. While we may see no solution, it’s undoubtedly already in the making and I can only pray that He continues to use me in His service, along with all the other great Americans Patriots across our country.
Battles would not be great and triumphant if they were easy. The more the Left undermines Rule of Law, the more glorious the reconstitution and restoration will be, the mightier the battle, and the mightier the men who will fight it. I simply pray that I continue to grow to fight that war, just as I am fighting this one, and that God preserves me to do so. God provided us with the means and the personal example to triumph over the greatest of evils, He has provided us with the solutions to our own problems, we simply must trust it is within His plan.
Keep fighting the good fight, do not despair on the 4th of July, but celebrate that Providence provided us with the greatest blueprint for governments among men in 1789, with the spirit of 1776. As Alexander Hamilton said, ‘The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the Hand of Divinity itself, and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.’ Our rights are only referenced by the Declaration, but endowed by our Creator, and as such, are self-evident. Obama cannot erase them and long after we are dead and gone, the rights of man will be preserved in the essence of God’s creation available only through reflection in His gift of reason. Evil ultimately will not prevail — we are blueprinted with Victory.”
