Here lies the remains of a brave and patriotic woman, one of many that fought for our country to become the great nation that it has become. Her name is, Sybil Ludington, although she often signed her name as “Sebal.” She is referred to as the female Paul Revere. She left her home on a rainy night to travel 40 miles all the while avoiding British soldiers and sympathizers to sound the alarm. She declined a man’s offer to join her along her journey but sent him eastward to carry the message forward.
Today we once again find ourselves in need of a messenger, one to sound the alarm. This time it isn’t the British we are fighting but it is our own government, one that is bent on changing the very framework of our nation. A government that wants to expand itself into every aspect of our lives. Taking over corporations, tripling our deficit, monitoring our every move. The government that is trying to legislate how we will be cared for by our Doctors and dictate to them how best to treat us. Where is the outrage?
We will have to travel more than 40 miles this time, as since the days of Sebal’s we have grown into a properous nation, one that is proud of it’s heritage and of those that sacrificed so that we may have the rights that we enjoy. However, those rights are slowly slipping away. On September 12, 2009 another alarm will be sounded as hopefully millions can gather to take back our Country and all that it represents. Will you be there? Will your voice be heard? Let not what Sebal did for us be in vain…….
