Masada, Citadel of Freedom’s Cry

Masada

“May this provide fresh inspiration for liberty-loving people everywhere. For death is sweeter than loss of liberty. And freedom is still worth dying for today.”

I just finished reading this Article from the May 1972 Ensign on a place called Masada. The story while fictional is based on true historical events and is, or at least I find it to be quite inspiring. The story of 960 Jews who rebelled and fought the Roman legions and choose death over slavery and oppression. I highly recommend reading this article. I hope that we can be just as steadfast in defending our personal liberties and freedoms.
