When the Constitution of the United States was being drafted, John Adams proclaimed that the whole idea of limited government simply couldn’t work unless people had a strong moral compass. Each of us has a responsibility to keep the dream of freedom alive, and that’s the message of this song my wife and I wrote at the turn of the new millennium. Please share it liberally. As we remember what happened this day 12 years ago, we must also remember how precious and fragile a gift freedom is and strive to live up to our best ideals in order to preserve it.
