"Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
-- President John F. Kennedy
I was in elementary school in Florida during the "Cuban Missile Crisis." I well remember being required to wear dog tags, taking blankets and canned goods to school and being taught to duck our heads under our desks. Those were very frightening times for a small child, and I imagine for our parents as well.
We no longer are living in fear of those missiles. Our greatest fear today is the enemy that is already living within our borders.
