Quote for Torsdag

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Benjamin Franklin

Quote for Torsdag

Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.

Janis Joplin

Taken from the song Me and Bobbi McGee made famous by Janis in 1970. The song was actually written by Kris Kristofferson and Fred Foster and was originally recorded by Roger Miller in 1969.

While I agree w/ Sonny Barger in that Freedom is not just another word, when considered in the context of the song I believe it really is a word for nothing left to lose.

Ponder it.

Memorial Day

“A holiday set aside by law in most states for honoring the U.S. soldiers and sailors who died in war.”

Let’s keep that in mind today and be thankfull for their sacrifice. It is the reason that we are able to enjoy that barbeque/camping trip/shade tree/fishing trip/etc in FREEDOM.

If you know or meet a VET, please thank them for their service. They were fully prepared to make that ultimate sacrifice themselves, and gave more than we can ever know.

And a special prayer to those who never came back….
