They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot?
-Patrick Henry, House of Burgess address
If we more tell ourselves it can't be helped because they are better planned, better funded, smarter, stronger and more numerous than us, we suck the courage from the hearts of ourselves and our future generations. To know and not care is apathy. To know and not do is laziness or cowardice. This media platform isn't the end, it's the beginning. It is to the listeners to decide what to do with the knowledge Chris passes us.
