The secret society in Cincinnatus actually exists. The Society of the Cincinnati was founded in 1783 following the Revolutionary War. The society’s founders wanted to make sure the sacrifices made to protect our liberties were never forgotten.
Tomorrow will be a day of barbecues and fireworks for most Americans. While there’s no reason why we shouldn’t enjoy the day, I think The Society of the Cincinnati got it right with their dedication to remembrance. Take a moment this weekend and remember all the sacrifices, past and present, that have allowed us to celebrate our freedom.
Have a safe, enjoyable 4th of July!
