On New Years Eve, 1959

From Annette Plasencia Ruiz on July 15, 2021. 

She wrote: On New Year’s Eve, 1959, my parents-in-law were celebrating at a supper club in Havana, dancing into the New Year with hopes of happiness & prosperity. Just after midnight, the music stopped & the lights turned on. The man who got on the stage told the crowd that Batista had fled Cuba, Fidel Castro’s army had won & was making its way into the city…

In 1787, all focus was on future generations, with a brand-new document, The United States Constitution. It is now the longest active governing document globally. When the Founding Fathers wrote this, they recognized they didn’t give us a perfect government but hoped the people would continue to “form a more perfect union.” The Constitution is not a breathing document that follows changes in human development but is a solid foundation constraining the worst tendencies of humans to enslave people through government. Even more so today, the relevancy of their thoughts and writings confirms the immutable agelessness of human nature and the brilliance contained in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

May God Shed His Grace on Thee

Wisdom

God did align the stars to give us 56 white men to represent all Americans. Our Founding Fathers gambled with “their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” but felt it was worth it to create a unique place on earth where men governed themselves and individual liberty was the order of the day. They were brilliant because they recognized man’s imperfection, and they included themselves. Our Founding Fathers correctly understood the inherent nature of humans. 

Having a distrust of government they realized its tendency to evolve into a bureaucratic master if citizens surrendered their independence. They understood that political and economic freedoms are the twin freedoms and that they are inextricably intertwined. We either preserve both or lose both; preservation is our responsibility. If we fail to stand up to the forces intent on subjugating all people to the rule of man instead of the rule of law, we will enter darkness long before we take our last breath.

In the book, The Lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence by B. J. Lossing, he writes about how nine died fighting or from hardship, twelve had their homes pillaged and destroyed by the British, five were captured and tortured before dying, two lost sons, another had two sons captured, and others lost wives and fortunes.  They risked it all and paid dearly for our liberties.

We Have a Choice

Every day and in every action, we make choices contributing to our future freedom or eventually subjection. If we honor our founders and predecessors, we’ll breathe our last breath as a free person, confident we repaid the favor given to us. It is up to each of us to contribute to the freedom of future generations rather than squander our inheritance.
