One day into the siege of the Alamo, on February 24, 1836, William Barret Travis wrote a desperate letter seeking aid from his fellow Texians and all Americans in the world. You see, rather than offer an easy and dishonorable surrender to the far superior forces surrounding them, Travis and his men were determined to use their last breath in the fight for cause of liberty.
Their plea, of course, went unanswered. I find myself wondering what I would have done back then? More importantly, of course, is to ask what will we do today? When liberty is threatened, do we embrace our creature comforts, or run to the action?
