With Courage she is nourished, and
with unceasing Commitment she is guarded."

Reader comments about this quote:
In your welcoming message you wrote: "Freedom can only be secured through vigilant exercise of our "natural-born rights." However, I have come to think that our freedom and values are articulated and secured by the speech and writings of thoughtful persons like yourself and those you have been selecting for Liberty Tree. Our "natural-born rights" have been developed out of social experience such as with the Liberty Tree that I value. Many thanks.

    This reminds me so much of marriage. We have the freedom to chose our mates, and with courage we face the battles life throws at us. Through committment to each other, we win and reap the rewards that marriage affords each mate. Thank you for your patriotic quote, and I hope you like what I drew from it, too. Thanks for your deep thought.

    Don't forget, after the Declaration came the battle to establish Liberty (i.e. the American Revolution) otherwise she would have been stillborn. And the way things are now, far too many Americans have shirked the responsibility of guarding her,

    Ultimately, Freedom is a state of spiritual and mental being.

    As it is written:

    " Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty."
