My amazing friend, Becca (not to be confused with my sister, also Becca) and I got to have some time together earlier this week. She’s one of the truest patriots I have ever encountered and probably has a better grasp on history, American history, and politics than 99% of the populous.
Anyway, I know that she is a big fan of Patrick Henry, and I saw where she had written out the extended quote of his famous, “Give me liberty or give me death!” quote in the front of one of her books.
It’s inspiring, and I put it here for your benefit.
“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” – Patrick Henry
And that’s just the last three sentences. The part before it is just as good also.
