Freedom
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
Ronald Reagan

Some things aren't automatically granted to each generation I guess.

Amen to that! Sometimes we need a little reminder like that or else we take it for granted.

Great quote and a sobering thought, to be sure.

Have a good night, Patty.
