A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

One of my favorite passages from Zell Miller’s RNC speech sets the theme for today’s July 4th news and notes:

Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier.And, our soldiers don’t just give freedom abroad, they preserve it for us here at home.

For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives that protester the freedom he abuses to burn that flag.

On America’s 230th birthday, keep these defenders in your thoughts and prayers:
