Let Freedom Ring

A True Story shared by Beckita

(As we’re revving up to take a stand for our freedoms while providing Godly stability on the streets and in public places in America, I was absolutely delighted to hear, from a dear friend, about a real life account of just such action, although, I’ve used fictitious names for my friend, his wife and the location in the retelling of the story, an Independence Day account of what it is to acknowledge God, take the next right step and be a sign of hope to those around you. )

Yesterday, my friend, Henry, shared a wonderful story of standing up for freedom. Henry and his wife, Hildegard, live in a large city in America with their seven beautiful children and, in the summertime, this family enjoys the fun of going to a local beach. With the Covid restrictions, Henry said there has been sort of a back and forth discussion among neighbors about the beaches being opened or closed. Henry hadn’t actually read the decree about closure but he thought it seemed to be a completely irrational and capricious decision to close them down. Of course, said Henry, it made sense that they’re closed from the perspective that the Fourth of July is a patriotic holiday and his particular mayor would want to punish the constituency who would desire to celebrate at the beach.

On the 4th, Henry and his family decided to go to the beach near their home. When they were in the water, a lifeguard showed up. Now, there hadn’t been a lifeguard at the beach for weeks and this lifeguard authoritatively yelled: “The beach is closed! You have to get out by order of the mayor! You’ve got to get out!” So, Henry, a brilliant, fearless, and God-loving man, started chanting: “This is America! This is America! This is America! This is America!” Now, there were many other people at the beach and they became mesmerized by the exchange.  Meanwhile the lifeguard made a phone call and her manager from the park district arrived and commanded, “By order of the mayor the beaches are closed and you have to get out!!!” Henry replied, “Thank you very much for doing your job. This is America! This is America! And we have declared that this is an Autonomous Zone of the Free Patriots of Regal City!”  Who appeared next? A couple of police officers who had been called. Henry approached them and sincerely said, “Look, we respect that you’re doing your job and we support the police.” Then Henry added, “I understand what the mayor’s proclamation is. What we’re doing is peacefully protesting the order of the mayor and this is an Autonomous Zone of the Free Patriots of Regal City.” The police officers nearly incredulously asked, “This is an autonomous zone?” And Henry replied, “Yes. We’ve declared this an autonomous zone.” Henry then asked the officers, “Are you guys going to arrest us?” The police replied, “The law is you have to leave.” Henry respectfully insisted, “Well, we’re peacefully protesting.” The other police officer said, “OK. Thank you.” So, the family went back into the water.

The next thing you know, NINE police officers showed up… all for a Catholic family enjoying a few hours at the beach. Meanwhile, people walked up to Henry thanking him for speaking up. Henry coached the people saying, “This is what it means to be an American. We have to stand up for our liberties. Martin Luther King said – and he was quoting Aquinas – ‘if a law is unjust, then it’s no law at all. And we have a duty to protest it.’” Henry’s family continued to hang out, play in the water, throw a football, etc. and, soon after the discussion with the police officers, Hildegard said they should probably head home since they had been there an hour and a half by then.

As Henry told this story he remarked that you have to realize there were a lot of people sitting around the periphery of the area obeying the order and they were riveted on the scene unfolding before them.

Henry cheerfully called out to the children to hop into the car because it was time to go. After everything was packed in their vehicle, the family went over to the police, shook all their hands and thanked them wholeheartedly for what they do and assured them that their family supports the police.

Henry then told me his family planned to pick up donuts the next morning, drop them off at the police station and sing “America the Beautiful” for the officers.

Henry thoughtfully reflected he had believed the police were likely going to remove his family, but on further reflection he said, “I think they were just coming down to see what an American looks like… an American who stands up for his rights… an American who says “no” to a tyrannical mayor.”

Henry said the whole encounter was a little nerve-wracking but fun nonetheless. Hildegard shared that a woman had approached the officers and insisted, “So, IS the beach open? Or IS the beach closed?” One officer replied, “The beach is closed, Ma’am.”  The woman protested while pointing to Henry and Hildegard with their clan, “But what about THAT family? THAT family was on the beach and they didn’t get a ticket. The mayor said that…” The police officer said, “Did you see us giving any tickets out?” So, the lady joyfully went onto the beach.

Henry noted as he told this story, “All it takes is one person who’s willing to stand up and say: ‘Enough of the crazy! Enough of the crazy.’” Henry added that during the whole time, he kept trying to focus on the Father to release peace into the situation. And it was very clear that the police were on the family’s side. Too, Henry said, “If you think about it… if the mayor allows for communists and Black Lives Matter people to loot, vandalize, destroy property and hurt people, are the police really going to arrest a family that’s peaceful, civic and Christian?” Answering his own question, Henry said, “I don’t think so.”

Henry further opined, “As long as we have police who have a sense of moral order, we’re not as far gone as we might have expected. So, praise God for liberty! Praise God for taking a step out!’

Joyfully, Henry recounted how, on the ride home, his wife was both affirming and proud of him. He welcomed being her hero and he also said to remember it is Catholic teaching to be a patriot of one’s country… to love our country and stand up for its defense and its liberties.

(In closing, I remind us that this story is true in every detail but for the changing of names and location. God bless Henry, Hildegard and their children! And God bless America!

      Thank you for the example of what it looks like! And in defiance of the no fireworks order- our driveway bares the scars of a grand old time late into the night! And my sons gladly got out the brooms to sweep it all up by lamp light!

      1. LIL WILD ROSE . . . we are thankful for you and your family.

        As I was driving west toward Los Angeles at twilight on the 4th, I crested a hill on the east end of the “Inland Empire” and delighted in the sight of innumerable flashes of star spangled color across many miles of the valley floor. This awesome display intensified during the next 30 minutes while I neared my destination.

        I finally pulled over into a neighborhood which appeared to be 99% Hispanic to capture video of this display of explosive color accompanied by the explosive booms, hisses and crackles. Children were playing all over the streets, screaming, laughing, riding bicycles, mini-bikes; patriotic music (“Born In The USA”) was blaring from a stereo; and NOT A MASK IN SIGHT in a state which the governator has mandated such and fireworks have been illegal for years.

        Maybe some of those fireworks I saw were your family’s!!!

        I have since seen this sight captured by the KTLA 5 news helicopter. If anyone wants to see it, there are several videos of this online (of course).

  1. Loved this account of standing up for freedom
    Today many faithful walked through the dirty streets of San Francisco from the Cathedral to City Hall, praying the rosary and singing hymns. We walked to let the City know that “God is Essential” and that our churches need to be opened. A film crew from Channel 5 followed us and we were on the 6’oclock news. But of course the narrative was about the city’s stance for “safety” and our selfish needs. No bother. We will continue to pray and stand up for our right to freedom of assembly and religion. Our Churches are essential. And Our Dear Lord is Most Essential.

  2. Beckita, thanks for posting this good news story. Here is another item of good news too.
    A recently published Ford Clinic experimental test (n=2541) validated hydroxy as an effective Covid treatment compared to the control, using a properly randomized design ( https://www.henryford.com/news/2020/07/hydro-treatment-study ). Unfortunately, this just published test failed to include any zinc in the treatment; given that the hydroxy has two relevant treatment effects: 1) it prevents the cytokine storm if administered early, as reported in this test, but 2) it also increases cell wall permeability to zinc, and the zinc in cells interferes with virus reproduction as Steve had informed us. With the addition of zinc to a maximum safe level, it’s likely that the treatment with the hydroxy would be even more effective. Curious that the zinc was not included with the hydroxy, since that appears to be the common treatment for physicians who say they are using it. Perhaps I’m being overly cynical in suspecting this experiment was designed to fail.

  3. Oh, my goodness, Beckita, this made me laugh! Autonomous zone, indeed! How very clever.
    In Oregon the beaches “belong to the people.” And that includes the beaches on rivers, too. However, the mayors of the beach towns asked that people not come when they’re not ready to receive crowds and so people have been going in small groups, just a family or two together and have brought most of what they need so as not to overwhelm the locals before they were ready. It seems to have worked out.
    Our Democratic governor has been reasonable and cautious which has impressed us. She is certainly getting some very good advice. We are having low positives compared to other States.
    And I have suffered a painful malady which I am lifting up in prayer for the success of our endeavors. I don’t know what I can do, not much physically, but, my goodness, I can pray!
    Praying for all here. Stay safe. Stay close to God and our Blessed Mother🙏🏼

  4. Prayers please, for Deacon Dave, my husband of 36 years who just passed away suddenly today. My Priest son was able to anoint him and give him the apostolic pardon while my ER nurse daughter was giving him CPR. We have 8 kids. Most were home visiting at the time. God has taken a prayer warrior home. We need prayers to make it through this week and to adjust to life without Dad. A specific prayer request…that the bishop will lift the COVID restrictions for his funeral Mass. He taught theology at the local Catholic high school. There will be hundreds of students and former students that will want to be there. He impacted so many lives.

What I think I understood was that one person would be tested in a row (not sure how many days in between or any at all) and if all 10 were positive even though only 1 person, they would all go into the count because there is no way to sift out the positives from the same person???? Sounds pretty barbaric to me😫

    1) Thank you for sharing this account Beckita.

    2) I already knew there are countless individuals protesting in similar manner, some having encounters with “authority” (with some negative and some positive results), but most “protesters” (including myself) having no engagement whatsoever with another person, in a position of authority or not, attempting to enforce the unconstitutional mandates. (I have wondered many times what has become of the man taken into custody from his paddle board by the naval armada in southern California.)

    3) I consider it brilliant strategy for Henry to declare their space an autonomous zone!!!

Too many of my brothers and sisters sit on the sidelines and do or say nothing. Just try to sign people up for 40 days for life! Listen to Father Altman’s Independence Day sermon, then pray for him. Not 24 hrs later he was taken to the hospital, very, very ill.

    Fr. James Altman is a priest of the diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin. We have featured a number of his homilies on our blog. This holy, courageous priest needs our prayers. On Sunday evening, Fr. Altman was feeling quite ill and went to the emergency room. Fr. Altman suffered a major heart attack last year and he has also suffered with chronic bronchitis for many years. Please pray for his health and for the medical team that’s tending to him.

  13. That’s an excellent story about an American who understands how to be a true American. Because of this story I see more clearly the importance of Martin Luther King’s right to protest for the right reasons which I didn’t understand many years ago. I also see those blinded by the Devil who claim their right to “protest” and use that as a feeble reason to cause chaos and damage to property and injury or worse to innocent bystanders who do not agree with their madness. These are indeed troubling times, but the truth between good and evil are becoming more and more evident. Hang on, pray without ceasing, and God will bring us to the other side when we will enjoy an “era of peace.” God bless everyone. Jesus I trust in you.

Here is a survey of cases which were mostly considered “Mild” and in which people are reporting long term symptoms from chronic fatigue, to reduced lung capacity, etc. Long term of course is just since March or so but I still would take this seriously. My hunch is that besides the lung and clotting issues this virus may be stressing the immune system in some ways. Steve BC your opinion here? This sample here is not random but of those reporting symptoms who sought out support groups, but still.

    1. Same here in my county, Linda. But I haven’t been wearing it anyway. If someone says something I’ll tell them I’m peacefully protesting and am floating around in a mask free autonomous zone. With all my heart I believe they are not necessary and boy, is it creepy to see everyone wearing them. It feels like the twilight zone. I wonder how many people think the way I do. I know I’m being terribly un-PC. But how dangerous can it be for us to not wear a mask if the “powers that be” permit protesters/looters to gather en masse without them? It’s so inconsistent and hypocritical.

    1. Yasssssssssss, A Scot!!! Thanks for sharing this. I have a very dear friend who’s there now, walking in the pilgrimage. She was born and raised in northern Saskatchewan and her family converted to Catholicism when she was in her teens. Of the seven children in her family, she and her two brothers were called to religious life. My friend is walking to reclaim the land of the eldest daughter of the Church for Christ. Here’s the name of the FB page if anyone would like to see videos and current pictures of the walk: M de Marie – Le Grand Pèlerinage en calèche

      And here’s some video footage taken near La Salette. I love this image of Our Lady, holding her Infant high!
