As we close Memorial Day, it's a time to reflect on the resilience of America. There is no doubt that we are under a double-barreled assault from enemies, foreign and domestic. And yet, based on the genius of the Founders, the blessings of God Almighty, and the sacrifice of patriots through the past couple of centuries, America is still standing.
The risk is that, unless we act to shore up the foundations, we will lose our resilience. President Reagan wisely told us:
"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."
The risk of failure is great. But we have survived existential challenges before and I pray we will again. The new nation almost failed under the Articles of Confederation, and again with the War of 1812. The Civil War almost destroyed us. There have been assassinations, coup attempts, World Wars, a Great Depression, and a Cold War. We have flirted with socialism multiple times but somehow have preserved liberty thanks to the sacrifice of those who have gone before.
Now, it's our turn to keep the flame of liberty alive and prepare the next generation. It won't be easy. The challenges are great with a domestic enemy intent on shoving us toward Marxism via racial strife, pandemic response, massive handouts, and an increasing regulatory state. The Deep State is alive and well. Social Media wants to silence anything other than the official narrative. At the same time, our foreign enemies, especially the Chinese Communist Party, socialists, and jihadists want to see America fall.
We need resilience and a determination to pass along freedom to the next generation. We also need the resolve to prepare the next generation to receive this spiritual gift, overcoming a failed education system and a snowflake mentality. We can do it. We must do it. We owe it to the men and women who sacrificed so much to get us here.
