Last night, during a mildly successful attempt at a (virtual) Irish wake for our friend and fellow patriot Andrew Breitbart, several of us attempted to describe the man with one word. Most of us failed. The list follows:
Warrior for the Good
And then this morning, I got an email from my husband. He referenced Dr. Suess (who fittingly has a birthday today) and the book "The Lorax," and said that the best word to describe Andrew Breitbart was "UNLESS."
The more I thought about it, the more I realized that he was absolutely correct.
Unless at least one person cares.
Unless at least one person continues to fight for the cause.
Unless at least one person continues to shout the truth.
Unless at least one person continues to expose the enemies of truth.
Unless at least one person has the courage to lift the standard and stand under it, unafraid.
Unless we do these things, the Republic is lost.
Andrew understood that. And unless at least one of us understands it and takes that next step, the risk is immeasurable.
