Today as we worship in security and comfort, we do so because thousands of young men and women have given their lives and shed their blood on foreign soil. They died in forsaken places with names not remembered so that we could experience the joy and responsibility of freedom. In fact, in the past couple of weeks several young Americans have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we can taste the fruit of freedom that springs from the tree of liberty. In a letter to William Smith dated November 13, 1787, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants” No, freedom is not free. The price is always paid in blood. The blood spilled by young American men in the past few weeks and months is not the first time blood was spilled for freedom. The blood spilled on battlefields called Concord and Charleston and York Town was not the first time blood was spilled for freedom. No, 2,000 years ago a young man’s blood spilled upon the ground so that we could all experience freedom.
