Tyranny and Honor

Definitions of tyranny (n)

tyr·an·ny [ tírrənee ]

1. cruel use of power: cruelty and injustice in the exercise of power or authority over others

2. oppressive government: oppressive government by one or more people who exercise absolute power cruelly and unjustly

3. state ruled by tyrant: a country or state under the power of an oppressive ruler

Tyranny is kind of an old fashioned word that we don't use as much these days.  So I put up the definition as a clear reminder of it's meaning.  Who knows, it probably isn't "politically correct" as far as the libs are concerned.  Tyranny  is mentioned in a letter I saw on Facebook from a friend, and I really wanted to share it.  The letter is from someone in the military...

I wanted to write you all and let you know that everyone of you that stands up against tyranny by speaking out, voting, or whatever it is that you do you have given me hope for this world once more. You honor those of us that have served th...is nation by what you are doing, and it is all of you that are the true hero's in all of this. We men and women of arms are only doing what we have sworn to do, and that is upholding the constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. You are all doing what you can out of love for your families, for your nation, and for your freedoms without an oath. Each and every one of you that speak out, tells a neighbor, tells a friend, or a family member about the truth of what is going on stand to be scorned, ridiculed, and excluded but you do it anyway. That is HONOR, COURAGE, AND COMMITMENT and I am proud to stand beside you in all of this! All of you have restored faith to many of us who have served in the military and are still serving, and you have shown us that you are not afraid to stand against tyranny any longer. Thank you all so much for doing what you are doing, and know that there are those of us out there that have and will always have your backs! God bless you all, your families, your neighbors, and God bless all of us in this peaceful fight! WE SHALL NO LONGER STAND DIVIDED, BUT UNITED!
