We need to stand together with those who are fighting for freedom and human dignity. We need to make sure that they know that not only do we have their backs, but also, we need to show those who will stoop to the lowest of low tactics to destroy the righteous that we will not be cowed.
Please join me in showing support for those who are being unjustly attacked by sharing, Tweeting, emailing, re-blogging the message that the enemies of freedom will never ever silence the truth tellers.
