This year’s Fourth of July comes amidst tumultuous times for our nation and for the world. The terrorist attack in Istanbul was—of course—only the most recent atrocity: Before Istanbul, there was Orlando, and Brussels, and San Bernardino and Paris, and the list could go on and on. And there are more threats to our freedom than radical Islam alone…
We have internal threats to our freedom—things that whittle away at our rights—like the Supreme Court that that (increasingly) takes core decisions out of the hands of the American people and their elected representatives.
It all this points to the fact that freedom is no longer the norm.
It is the exception to the rule. Freedom—as Reagan said—“is never more than one generation from extinction.”
As you take time with friends and family this 4th, savor the still beautiful fact that we are indeed free … and then join me as we redouble our individual commitments to fight to do all we can in order that freedom—unfettered freedom—and that it may long endure.
From all of your friends at the Salem Media Group, Happy Independence Day!
