Curtain of Darkness
Mankind has suffered under the cloud of tyranny throughout the ages. The United States of America was conceived, created, and then maintained as the breath of freedom for humanity suffering thousands of years under the air of oppression. Liberty was neither easy nor cheap but hard and costly in blood and treasure. America has been a light to the immigrant and a beacon of liberty in an all too often benighted world. Americans owe no fealty to king or potentate, but we are forever in debt to those we can never repay who shed their blood so we may walk down the streets and avenues free.
