Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it. (Thomas Paine, American revolutionary political activist)

Planted in the heart of every human being, it seems, is the desire to be free, to express himself or herself in the manner he or she may choose. But a great price was paid to secure that freedom and it demands vigilance even today to guarantee continued liberty of conscience and expression. We must appreciate our freedom and work hard to protect it.

Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil. (1 Peter 2:16)
