Author's notes: Since this Thursday fell on the 4th of July, I thought it would be appropriate tp profile the star-spangled DC's Guardian. I asked him if he had a message he'd like to share with Heroes in the Night readers today and he sent me this exclusive 4th of July address:

  • “When in the course of human events. . .” 
    These words, written in an age of faith, courage, and resolve...for the generations that would follow.  237 years have gone by. Many lives have been lost to keep these words alive around the world. A beacon that-- whether you believe it or not-- still holds the wonder and imagination of those who do not want to be controlled...but to be self sufficient...self succeed...or fail on their own...but on their own, nonetheless. Our founding fathers put down these ideals in an iron clad agreement, most losing all for the generations that would follow.9 died during the revolution. 5 captured by the British. 18 had their homes looted or burned down. Some lost everything they owned. 2 wounded in battle, 2 were the fathers of sons killed or captured…"Our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor." It was not just rhetorical hogwash. Many people through the ages have died for this cause. . .those in the military even give up their civil liberties for the safety and security of others.The words are argued over daily, but fewer even read them anymore. ”With a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” The world changes each moment. I firmly believe as it may change, fundamental truths do as many tomorrows as may be allowed.Truth is truth. We should not allow it to be hidden-- remember-- what we tolerate today, those who come after will embrace. You choose life, liberty. . .or the loss thereof. --DC
