New Hampshire’s “Live free or die” is perhaps the most passionate state motto of them all. I can only wonder if such resolve exists in our American Society today. Our family just concluded a world win vacation of the Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains rich in historical Patriots who believed and lived the New Hampshire state motto. Virginian Patriots such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Nathaniel Bacon, George Rogers Clark, Patrick Henry, Henry “Lighthorse Harry” Lee, Richard Henry Lee, and Daniel Morgan.
What these Patriots had in common was that they all believed in freedom over self, and they were willing to risk death to achieve it. These Virginian Patriots joined forces with Patriots from across our great land and created not just a motto to live by, but also an entire nation. Resolve of such passion is admired, and must be always in duplication to ensure that, our great nation never cease to exist… “Live free or die”!
