Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness
November is when we focus on our Veterans and dedicate this issue of The Bulletin to them. I have a lot of them in my family and among my friends. A few years ago, my wife and I were lucky enough to be in England on November 11, which is celebrated there still as Armistice Day.
They observe a moment of silence at the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month still. The purpose of this is to remember not only the veterans but the sacrifice to save freedom of all who fought and supported that effort.
Each of us in a society have a responsibility to support the safety of all of us within that society. We fought wars to protect the right of people to exercise freedom of choice – from the veterans of wars to those who protect that way of life for us daily.
Our efforts to protect our freedom to assemble as we see fit falls into that same social fabric. The veterans fought to protect a way of life that they want for themselves and their families. Today’s veterans and active-duty personnel are doing the same thing, protecting our rights to live in a society that allows us to celebrate our individuality and our desire to support a common good.
How does this relate to nudists and nudist movement? Well, we fight for the life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. I’m happiest when I can be free to be nude and feel safe in whatever environment I am in. I think the small efforts we make to protect our ability to be nude and safe is a small part of what makes this society great.
Your GAT team appreciates your support for our ongoing efforts to monitor legislation that may impact that freedom.
