Last year, this time I was not sure that this particular July 4th, would be as it is, truly free. I celebrate today in such a deep and grateful way. Thank you to those who fought and are fighting for our freedom, regardless of where you served. Thank, you to those who stand with someone united in freedom and support. You were and are still holding that flagpole up as well.
I am holding it up with you, and I invite others to hold it up, along with, “The Founding Project.” This is a chance to be the one who starts a movement in your community-- to take a stand for our Country. You can take Civics to the citizens and with knowledge create strength.
Take a moment to celebrate beyond the parties and fireworks. It seems to be unpopular to be so patriotic these days; in fact, former President, Obama, recently warned us about this. I say, “BRING IT ON!” My flag is staying up after today, how about yours?
I feared that forces would change our flag or be on the road to do so. This isn’t something new. They have made their voices known very clearly over the years. There is an organized plan to take our flag down. It’s that simple. I feared that last year's election would change our country so much that it would not be the same country anymore, and that the people in our history, like those at Fort Henry, who kept walking up to the flagpole over and over and over-- moving bodies to knowingly lay their own down in death to support that flagpole upright would have died in vain. They kept holding the flagpole at Fort Henry when Francis Scott Key watched and relayed the news that “Our Flag was still there.”
