How does the Gettysburg address apply to citizen today?

Checkthefacts:

Wendell Philips, a 19th century once said, "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty". The Gettysburg exhorts us today not to let the lives of brave men who died in defense of a constitution which ostensibly guarantees the rights of ALL Americans, be lost in vain. If we continue on the path of apathy which we Americans seem to have stepped onto, those freedoms and rights for which so many gave their lives will gradually slip away, and America will no longer be a country of government by the people, of the people, and for the people. Our democracy (actually democratic republic) will have died, as T.S. Eliot once said, "Not with a bang, but a whimper". Open your eyes, open your minds, investigate, instigate, and VOTE.
