The true price of freedom is personal responsibility. And some of us have it within us to pay this price willingly and with joy. It’s what real character is all about.
Preserving freedom is our most noble cause. But it demands sacrifice. And the noblest sacrifice next to giving one’s life is living it with real integrity. Character matters. Perhaps today more than ever.
The values we profess to cherish are our individual responsibility to preserve and uphold. For reasons too vast to fully enumerate, character really does matter, and how great we are as a people is completely dependent upon what kind of persons we are individually.
