Guest Column: Americans didn’t invent freedom

St Augustine, FL

Americans didn’t invent freedom. It was given to us by God, and we’ve embraced it unlike any other country in the history of the world.

The founders relied on Divine Providence, and we can’t forget that.

I often hear people say that a relationship with God and love of politics doesn’t mix. Politics can be nasty. But I don’t think God wants us sit idly and watch our country crumble around us.

We have a duty to protect what we have been blessed with by God -– standing up for liberty and truth. I think many Americans forget that the fight for freedom is never over.

“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, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

–Ronald Reagan

Happy Independence Day!
