"The Solstice approaches. Every day, the sun dips lower in the south, and every day its time above the horizon decreases. It’s dark, and it gets darker every day.
There’s not a person reading these words who, raised with an understanding that Freedom is not the default state of man but rather a force field against tyranny that must be maintained every day through effort and hard work – there’s not one among you that does not look out into the free land that was handed to us by our ancestors with dismay, and the same sense of unfocused dread that a thousand generations felt as the sun dipped ever lower, day by day – because this time, perhaps, it will not climb again."
But there is hope! Read it all and take courage!
