30 Days of Reagan - Day 15

Above all, we must realize that no arsenal or no weapon in the arsenals of the world is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.

My take:  What's in your pocket, on your hip, in the safe, sitting on your desk, or buried next to the old oak tree in the back yard isn't the weapon.  It's you, your skills, and your motivations that matter. You, as a free man or woman, can choose to live free, follow just laws, and stand up against injustice and tyranny.  Or you can choose to be a slave or vassal, be a predator upon the weak and undefended, or turn your head when you see others being abused.  I hope that I have the strength to be the former, and to resist the latter.  Either way, it's your choice, but the tools you choose are not what makes you dangerous or strong.  They are only what you choose to use.
