The Price of Freedom

In my column at Townhall today I look at the price we pay to live in a free and open society.

The phrase “the price of freedom” is often used when referring to the sacrifices of soldiers in battle to defend America’s freedoms. There is another price of freedom though. We paid it most recently in a very big way in Blacksburg, Virginia, but we have paid it many times previously, as well…

The balance between freedom and security is often a difficult one to make and at times our desire to live in a free society comes with a high price. One of the things that makes our way of life so desirable, is also what makes us, at times, very vulnerable. Such is the case with anything worthwhile in life though.
