Free Born Man
"I know that nothing in life is free and that anything worth having comes with a cost. I know that wisdom comes with age and that children are brutally honest. I know that government is a necessary evil and that morality is the key to self governance. I also know that truth is absolute and not relative. I know that changing the environment is not nearly as effective as changing a heart."
I am a Free Born Man.
I believe in natural law, natural rights, freedom and individual liberty. My rights are God given, inalienable and part of my being.
I live in a nation created by geniuses, preserved by men of valor with blood, sacrifice, and sacred honor. I understand that a life without principles and values is a life not lived. That character is who you are when nobody is watching, that it is better to listen than to speak. I know that silent charity comes from the heart and that virtue signalling is false and self aggrandizing. I know that it is better to live and die with a good name than to possess mountains of silver and gold.
I understand that free speech means having to endure words, images and ideas that I disagree with. I know that the right to swing my fist ends where the nose of another begins. I know and understand that sunshine is still the best disinfectant and that ideas have consequences and bad ideas have victims. I know that a mans word is his bond, and a hand shake with eye contact tells you all you need to know.
I know that nothing in life is free and that anything worth having comes with a cost. I know that wisdom comes with age and that children are brutally honest. I know that government is a necessary evil and that morality is the key to self governance. I also know that truth is absolute and not relative. I know that changing the environment is not nearly as effective as changing a heart.
I know that good is good and evil is evil and that darkness is the absence of light. I know that life is precious and murder is wrong, no matter what it is called. I know that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. I also know it can move a mountain. I know that equality of opportunity far exceeds equality of outcome and that pursuit of happiness is self determined and based on effort.
I know that there are many things worth dying for and just as many worth living for. I know respect is earned and never given, that hope realized is no longer hope, but reality. I know that tears can express both unbearable hurt and unbelievable joy, that laughter is always the best medicine.
I know that innocence violated is evil expressed, that bad things sometimes happen to good people. I know that a hand up is better than a handout, that it's better to teach a man how to fish than to give him one. I know that individuals commit crimes, that flags, guns, statues and knives are inanimate objects. I know that sin has no boundaries and that the key to overcoming evil is to do good.
I know that one must stand for something or he/she will fall for anything. I know that what is popular isnt always what is right. I know that words have meaning and that life has purpose. I know that there are some things that are greater than oneself and that to realize this is to know what it means to be free!
I am a Free Born Man, I know these things........
