The uprising in Cuba has been a Godsend for me-- and not just because it's really fun to write jokes mocking Communism! For me, (and I expect I'm not the only one) these sorts of things serve to pull me out of my day-to-day troubles and the partisan bickering in our country and remind me just how blessed we are to be free.
Our country is far from perfect, but it's amazing to see how our flag still inspires hope in the hearts of many around the world who yearn for freedom.
Let us pray for the precious souls standing up to tyranny around the world. Let us be diligent to use our freedom to do good, and to instill courage and character in our children.
