In Response to the Tragedy at Ft. Hood
by Debra Medina on Nov 06, 2009
We grieve. And we extend condolences, sincere and genuine. And I extend mine to the families of those slain in yesterday’s shootings; to those injured and to their families.
Today though, beyond our shock, and beyond our grief, we must do something different. We must face the reality that this shooting underscores: It was not the first and it will not be the last. NO amount of military or police presence can protect us from an individual intent on doing harm. The protection of life, liberty and property must begin with us. We must be prepared to defend ourselves. In our earliest days as a country, Noah Webster recognized, “the whole body of the people are armed , and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, of any pretence, raised in the United States.”
Not even the greatest military can protect us. Everywhere, at all times, individuals must be prepared to defend themselves and their family. Do not be afraid, but be bold and courageous knowing that you have done all you can to protect yourself and your family. Take up arms, learn to use them and use them well. We will all be safer for it.
[Editor’s note: Realizing that this is not very timely posted, but since it was just discovered and so well stated in the midst of all the spinning going on in the main stream media, have opted to post it for our readers anyway. We deeply appreciate Debra Medina’s gracious and timely and very wise words. We are so very pleased that she is running for Governor in Texas and giving the people a real choice for a constitutional conservative – a true R3publican!/sc]
