We Are Fighting Back - Day 55

With A Greater Love

Sunday, January 5, 2020

Today is Day 55. Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. Our cowboy friend Everett stopped by the campsite today and shared stories about his life growing up in a multi-generational ranching operation. He shared how his dad, grandpa, uncle, and their neighbors all worked together to make ends meet and take care of their families. Times were often hard back then and much effort was required to just take care of a family’s daily life needs. As the saying goes though, those were the good old days. The good old days. For many, the good old days are remembered as an era when family, friends and neighbors helped each other and pulled together to find solutions when problems and hardships came along. Not only did survival often demand it, but the good old boys believed getting involved when there was a need was their family obligation, friendly responsibility, and the neighborly thing to do. As such, opportunity for, and accessibility to, life, liberty, and happiness were available for all, and not just a chosen few. What has happened? How did we let the good old days pass us by? Today, it feels families are becoming extinct, friends are faith weather social media rating opportunities, and neighbors do not even know one another’s names unless a social media character assassination gets launched and then they join the attack with devoted fervor. Is this what advanced technology, lightspeed communication, and progressive thinking have done for our society? If so, we need to all be careful what we ask for. As we read history, as in history as it was written back when it happened and not the rewritten history often circulated to serve political agendas today, it appears our forefathers’ basic formula for building our great country was found in encouraging its citizens to display a greater love for one another by laying down their lives and being there for one another. Establishing a more perfect union plan was accomplished by standing together in unity, peace, and solidarity as one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

As we continue our campsite adventure, we remain committed in our stand for religious freedoms, property rights, and due process for our family, as well as for yours. We remain unified in our decision to do the right thing and fight back against all the slanderous, defamatory accusations and claims made against us; to give time and truth the opportunity to clear our name and expose all the corruption, collusion and racketeering we and others have endured; to resist the urge to join in divisive agendas; and to do our part to try and help save our homeland. Dispossessing us of our property without due process and attacking us for our faith are unlawful, unconstitutional, and unAmerican. Protecting and preserving our rights to be heard and to be considered innocent until proven guilty, to pray to God and have the freedom to stir revivals, and to have and keep our property and protect it from being taken from us are all paramount rights wrapped up in our American citizenships. Bad boys trying to avoid getting caught and bad-mannered gossip trolls on social and fake media cannot be allowed to deny us these rights if any of us are to remain free. Only cowards, guilty bad boys, and those who fear public exposure and federal investigations into what is really happening would willfully ignore our decade-long pleas for a jury trial, media exposure, community outrage, help in stopping this abuse, and then try to execute a fast-paced, short-lived media blitz to discredit us and facilitate a prejudiced social media trial complete with a pre-paid community verdict. Loving can be tough at times. But, as the saying goes, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. Love and smoky campfire hugs from the Nick and Donna Nickerson Family.
