“People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” George Orwell
We must not forget the freedoms, nor especially the price paid, to which so many of us have become accustomed that we are no longer aware of them.
It truly can all be taken away, in one fell swoop, or in little drops one at a time.
Acknowledge and thank those who have enabled all that we now enjoy.
And be vigilant.
