A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit. -Greek proverb

One thing that’s certain about this movement to save the republic from our own centralized state, is that the fruits of our labor are far, far off.  You cannot reverse decades of centralization in one election cycle or even a dozen- the things we are all working towards are likely to only be fully enjoyed by those future generations- our children and grandchildren.

In that respect, I find it greatly encouraging that there are so many patriots out there who conduct their activism accepting the likelihood that they will not experience true liberty in their lifetime.  These defenders of the Constitution push on nonetheless, and do their best to attract youthful comrades who’s future is what’s at stake.

It is easy enough to dismiss those who are older- who’s generation largely turned away from what the founders so carefully designed.  What is more difficult, is to grasp the unspoken truth contained in that Greek Proverb.  It would be wise, perceptive and indicative of progress for young people to appreciate these elder patriots for the true selflessness of their dedication.

To all of the younger generations reading this: the next time you see an older activist at a meeting, event or rally, thank them.  It’s not their lifetime that is at stake anymore- it’s YOURS.
