A letter from an acquaintance:
“Our 5th grader grandson entertained us adults last night at his public school Christmas Musical. At the end his teacher asked everyone to pray for our troops as they are “protecting our freedoms overseas”. My wife was completely dumbstruck. “How are they protecting our freedoms”?”
Good question, no good answer. With all the stripping away of our rights in the name of national security, I can’t help but ask: Must we lose our constitutional rights in order to protect our freedom?
Or is it like they told us in Vietnam: “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.”
