Stand and Fight

In history we often come across the line “the spark that ignited…”. Historians don’t always agree which incident was that exact spark.  When looking at the Revolutionary War, some say it was March 5, 1770 when a mob of Patriots harassed British Soldiers on King Street. The Soldiers fired on the crowd killing three men and two others who died  later of their wounds. We know the event as the Boston Massacre. Or maybe it was a few years prior in October 1768 when over 4,000 British Troops were dispatched to Massachusetts to control the Colonists. Or maybe it was the Coercive or Intolerable Acts in 1776 which placed Massachusetts under military rule.  The rule ended self-rule by the Colonists and awoke many of them to understand the threat to their liberties.

In August of 1775, prior to the Acts, the King declared that the American subjects were “engaged in open and avowed rebellion.”  As I listen and watch all over New York State, I can’t help but think if a different “King” has not declared that with his recent statement about his subject who believe in the second amendment, believe in the right to be born and believe the government should not be playing any role in the sanctity of marriage.

Since January 2013, his “unwanted subjects” have been doing just that.  We have been very open about his tyrannical ways. We rallied at every corner of the state. We wrote letters asking why and questioning the unconstitutionality of a law that was passed without reading and understanding.  We formed patriot groups of individuals who have vowed to Stand and Fight. We held our Shot Heard Around the State as did the Patriots on that faithful day, April 19, 1775 at Lexington Green.

Seventy men stood up to the British Advance Guard that day and fought until they could fight no more.  The British continued their march and headed to Concord, destroying the Colonists’ weapons and supplies.  When they reached North Bridge another group of militiamen attacked them and inflicted more damage on their troops. The British then retreated and set their course to return to Boston.  All along the way, farmers and rebels shot and attacked them, again doing damage to the British Troops. Each time a small group of individuals Stood and Fought to protect their liberties.

As I watch the current “unwanted subjects” unite and prepare for Battle, I can’t help but think about that day when small groups of people, people in small towns, communities along the way who were willing to Stand and Fight.  They knew going into battle with a King who had no allegiance to them, a King who looked down upon them, a King who looked at them as “unwanted subjects”, could mean a loss of everything; even loss of life. But they still fought, they still spoke out, they still found like minded individuals who were willing to Stand and Fight.

I can’t help but feel that the current “unwanted subjects” have the same tenacity as the men who fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill in June 1775.  They stood their ground and even after they ran out of ammunition they continued to fight, using bayonets and stones to defend their liberties. They didn’t turn and run, they continued to fight because of the belief that Liberty is worth fighting for.

By virtue of being American we have that same sense of pride, that sense of belonging to a cause and the impenetrable force to Stand and Fight.

I for one, often reflect on those Brave Americans who came before and were the original “unwanted subjects”. I hope this self-declared “King” does recognize that we, members of the New York Unwanted  are “engaged in open and avowed rebellion” and we will Stand and Fight.
