Freedom From Tyranny

How do we properly celebrate what has been left to us by those who have lived and fought the good fight before us?  We teach our children by example what must be done to preserve this fragile thing we know as freedom.  It can be  freedom to do great things,  freedom to worship as God leads us to, or freedom from the tyranny from a government run by unprincipled men who have forgotten who establishes government. Read Romans Chapter 13 where the apostle Paul instructs Christians on government and why it was established.  I am thankful everyday that I was allowed to be born here in the United States of America. Let's purpose to fight back against the tyranny that threatens our wonderful heritage.  Here is the definition of tyranny, followed by a shot poem I hope will inspire.

  1. cruel and oppressive government or rule.
    "people who survive war and escape tyranny"
    synonyms:despotism, absolute power, autocracydictatorship, totalitarianism,Fascism; More
    • a nation under cruel and oppressive government.
    • cruel, unreasonable, or arbitrary use of power or control.
      "she resented his rages and his tyranny"

  2. Memory

    Through the thin wall
    I heard my father’s voice.
    Long gone, but still there.
