Happy Memorial Day
Please take some time this weekend to pause and reflect upon the ultimate sacrifice paid by those men and women of our armed forces who have died protecting and preserving the freedom we so enjoy.
What king, tyrant, despot, or dictator would we be subject to if it were not for the bravery of those Americans who have been willing to defend our nation?
Of course, freedom is not only defended by those in the armed forces. In fact, it is all of us who are given the charge to understand our Republic and do the things that are necessary to preserve it.
When asked what form of government ultimately was decided upon at the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Ben Franklin quipped, "A Republic, if you can keep it!"
Thus, it is in our charge to be diligent citizens, seeking that knowledge and information that will better equip us at defending liberty.
We hope that we at Bearing Drift help you in your efforts at being Virginia's conservative voice.
