Keepers of Liberty

"The boys of the rising generation are to be the men of the next, and the sole guardians of the principles we deliver over to them." Th Jefferson in a letter to Samuel Knox, February 12, 1810

Our children today are the leaders tomorrow; how can they lead if we do not instill in them the principles of goodness and wisdom.  Education is most important, they must learn to read the wisdom of wise men, encouraged to ask wise questions in order for wise answers be found. Principles are based upon what is right and fair in the universe, what is give to us by birth, our children must know.

Allow children the follies of youth, give them time to experience freedom and liberty without reservations, to taste freedom and liberty gives one a desire for it for a lifetime. Let them frolic in days of youthful years; too soon they grow, yet while the young years mold them they need a happy heart.

Produce a good foundation in our children, allow them room for individual growth, but guide them where there are faults and praise them on achievements; a good adult shall appear. Take the time then as they grow, give them all necessary examples of principles with undeniable righteousness, they shall keep them close to rely their decisions on. Do not hesitate, be careful in securing news of their creator within their hearts, no man can be without a heart bathed in love, it gives him character, keeping him fair and balanced.

When upon your age, your days lingering in the autumn of your lifetime, give over to your children the business of guarding freedom and liberty; then too they shall prepare the next generation. Children are the holders of our existence, they are the keepers of freedom and liberty for the next generation; prepare them well and freedom and liberty shall prevail a millennium  hence.

Yours in Liberty
