“The price of freedom is high, it always has been. And it’s a price I’m willing to pay. And if I’m the only one, then so be it. But I’m willing to bet I’m not.” -Captain America
During WWII, there was meat rationing to allow the soldiers and sailors access to the food needed so that they could risk their lives to protect our ideals and liberty. People planted Liberty Gardens and bought war bonds, cut back on purchases and collected scrap metal.
During the 1970’s people cut back their driving during the oil embargo, developed alternatives to save energy, and found ways to deal with inflation and recession. They did what they needed to to survive and keep fighting for a better future.
Previous generations were willing to pay any price, bear any burden, fight any foe, help any friend to do what was right and let freedom ring. Hear that bell call you today and answer it, step forward and take the risks and pay the price for freedom for you and your family.
