This is for anyone who has ever said or believes something similar to this in regard to the death of soldiers: Somebody has to sacrifice so that we
can enjoy our freedom, or way of life, or so they don't have to die themselves. This is only partially TRUE!
The TRUTH is that you, and me, and every single last one of us MUST SACRIFICE so that we have our freedom. What is really up for debate is THE DEGREE
OF SACRIFICE. In a state where you are born into freedom, I believe that there are at least two stages or degrees of sacrifice required to enjoy our
freedom or way of life or what have you. At first, everyone must sacrifice some of their time and money in order to become informed of what
freedom/liberty is and how to protect it. Then they MUST sacrifice more time and money in order to protest and DEMAND ACTION when that freedom is
infringed upon. It is only when this degree of sacrifice is not fulfilled that the second degree of sacrifice is required. That is to say that only
when you haven't demanded your freedom not be infringed upon peacefully that further actions or even DEATH is required in order to regain it. What do
you think, and how many people aren't sacrificing even to the first degree?
