"The Best Birthday Present: America needs its citizens to fight for the things that made us great."
All is not lost. But all could be lost — especially if too many of us take freedom for granted and focus our attention on other things, such as electronic gadgets and the antics of celebrities, while ignoring such dangers as nuclear weapons in the hands of suicidal fanatics with a track record of savagery, whom we are too squeamish to call anything stronger than “militants.”
Nor are all the dangers abroad. Within our own country there are all too many signs of people blithely ready to sacrifice the interests or freedom of Americans for the sake of symbolism or passing fashions.
