The American colonists lived in oppression and under an unjust law, ruled by a tyrant and treated as second-hand Englishmen. Along with 27 unbearable acts made by the king. Freedom and liberty were questioned at this point for all who lived under the king's rule.
This was a great and terrible time. The scent of freedom aroused in the hearts of men, and a want for liberty shined once more. But liberty and freedom often come at a price in this world, which many brave men and women willingly paid.
Sometimes I wonder what life would be like now if we had lost the war. I cannot imagine living without the freedom we currently possess. Our Forefathers were simple men who caught the vision of the most beautiful, powerful, free country that has ever been seen in the history of the world.
God knew the amount of lives that would be taken home. But I think he had something else in mind besides a great and powerful country. I think he was bringing a new kind of hope to a dark and lonely world full of people who had never even tasted freedom.
Yes, it was worth it. For though thousands had died, the reward was well worth it. I can't help but imagine that those who went home, went home draped in honor and glory.
