Today I attended a rally for the 2nd amendment in Utah’s capital. The crowd was lively, the speeches were rousing, the people patriotic. This was such a humbling experience, seeing so many dedicated patriots in one place. The end of one speech given by a Vietnam Veteran echoed the chanting of “freedom, freedom, freedom.” The whole people swelling into an overwhelming chorus.
I brought my kids along to experience first hand what it means to exercise the right to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly.
The lesson learned today was one I hope will resonate with my children for many years to come. That no matter what, you must not be afraid to speak up even in the face of tyranny. That our rights are meant to protect us, and freedom is precious. God bless all who showed up today.
