Something to think about

Here's some food for thought for all of those campus protestors who damn our military, career activists who burn our flag, and the defeatists in the press who willingly aid our enemy with their "blame America first" reporting.

Remember who guards your freedom

I want you to close your eyes and picture in your mind the soldier at Valley Forge, as he holds his musket in his bloody hands.

He stands barefoot in the snow, starved from lack of food, wounded from months of battle and emotionally scarred from the eternity away from his family surrounded by nothing but death and carnage of war.

He stands tough, with fire in his eyes and victory on his breath. He looks at us now in anger and disgust and tells us this...

I gave you a birthright of freedom born in the Constitution and now your children graduate too illiterate to read it.

I fought in the snow barefoot to give you the freedom to vote and you stay at home because it rains.

I left my family destitute to give you the freedom of speech and you remain silent on critical issues, because it might be bad for business.

I orphaned my children to give you a government to serve you and it has stolen democracy from the people.

It's the U. S. Serviceman
not the reporter who gives you the freedom of the press.

It's the U.S. Serviceman
not the poet who gives you the freedom of speech.

It's the U.S. Serviceman
not the campus organizer who allows you to demonstrate.

It's the U.S. Serviceman who
salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is draped with the flag, who made it possible for the protester to burn the flag!!!
