I have lived to see inside former East Germany and North Korea and have even been to the dark place in Berlin where Hitler's henchmen tortured and hung his political enemies. My conclusion from studying world politics in college and on my own is that the void created by the absence of good is simply evil.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing".
- Edmund Burke Irish orator philosopher & politician (1729 - 1797)
It is certainly true that nothing good or worth having in this life ever comes easy or cheap. As in litigation inevitably we have to fight or show that we are ready willing and able to do so ... in order to resist evil in order to fill the void. Donï¿½t be fooled by politicians courting a vote for higher office. The world is in fact a very dangerous place and there are definitely people who care to cause maximum harm to this country. You and your family mean nothing to such people.
Therefore I would ask that tonight before you go to sleep and even on every night that when you give thanks you also please remember the brave men and women who willingly stand in harmï¿½s way ready to do violence if they have to so that you can sleep in peace one more night. Right now this very minute and even as you sleep here at home and all over the world they are paying the price for us and they deserve all of the support that we can give them and then some.
Remember the 4 "boxes" that protect our freedom:
Soap, Ballot, Jury, and Ammo
