Would you stand atop the wall?

Like it or not we are a warrior species. Trace our history throughout the recorded centuries and you will hear tales of wars, of the conquerors and the conquered.  We battle even in today’s age of technology and enlightenment.

We can talk of pacifism today, but our current nations were built on the bones of those who believed in their countries and their people. We may regret the actions of the past looking back at a safe distance, but we were not where our ancestors stood.

Our country has many problems, and will never be the utopia of which poets praise and dreamers dream.  Yet, it was built on the belief that we can rise above our past, that we could achieve our dreams.  We can be free to choose, not just the rich or royal but Everyman.

It is this belief that so many went to battle for, it is this belief spurred on by advancements in technology that has us striving to do better, to call out the politicians and hypocrites. It is this belief that keeps inching us onward slowly to progress.

We stand atop the wall against those who would take our freedom, who would subject us to torment, who would see the rise of enslavement and ritual cruelty again.  We stand the wall; an invisible barrier of the hopeful who believe in freedom and who know that freedom is never free.

CAN YOU STAND ATOP THE WALL?

…stand face to face with our enemies as they scream and taunt?

…stand ready to give your life to protect your countrymen and the values we hold so dear?

…stand strong defying tyranny to pass.

…stand there preventing those who would prey on innocence

CAN YOU STAND ATOP THE WALL?


….THEN REMEMBER THE ONES WHO STOOD THERE FOR YOU AND STILL DO.
