America’s freedom may be purchased through her military strength, but how many realize that it is just as important for everyone, not just those in her military, to be ever vigilant about retaining those freedoms? How many can look at any proposed law change and see such a change as bolstering or eroding our freedoms? I guess one way is to learn from someone else’s successes and failures. A friend emailed me a part of an eyewitness account of what occurred in Austria around the time of WWII. I found it quite thought provoking since it was not a “what if” – rather it was “this happened”. Instead of reprinting it here, I will just supply a link for those interested in a little bit of history as told by someone who lived through it: America Truly is the Greatest Country in the World. Don’t Let Freedom Slip Away.
