The Last Ounce of Courage

"The Last Ounce of Courage" is an excellent movie. I will at some point get the rooftop quote and add it to this blog. If any of you know where I may get it besides rewatching the movie please let me know.

I looked everywhere for this speech and could not find it, so I rewatched the movie and transcribed it. Enjoy and be inspired!

The Rooftop Speech

As you probably heard, I am no longer the mayor of this town. So, tonight I stand here a freedom fighter. This country was founded by freedom fighters, men and women, who loved their country and their Creator.  Four hundred years ago our forefathers left the religious oppression of another land to build this one. And the first thing they did, the first thing they did was to put a cross on the shores of the Atlantic, but it was more than a cross. It was a symbol that in this land a citizen has the freedom to worship, as he or she desires or the freedom not to worship at all. My fight isn’t about colored lights or a tree on the city square. My fight is about freedom and taking back what has been stolen from us.

We are losing freedoms one by one that our forefathers, our brothers in arms, and my son died for. It is time we stood up for what they died for, for what we believe in. Our rights are being destroyed perhaps forever. But don’t you see we are letting it happen, we’re asleep. We sleep and they come in like a thief in the night and they take what’s left.

WAKE UP! WE CAN’T SLEEP ANY MORE. WAKE UP AND LOOK AROUND YOU. LOOK AT WHAT’S COMING OVER THE HORIZON. WE CAN’T LET THE ENEMY TAKE ONE MORE INCH. NOT ONE MORE INCH. WE CAN’T BE SILENT ANYMORE. THE SILENCE HAS TO STOP! AND IT HAS TO STOP TODAY!


Young men and women are dying in foreign lands to preserve the freedoms that we enjoy e-v-e-r-e-y   s-i-n-g-l-e   day. Can you hear them? Just listen. It’s their voices from the graves. They are wondering if they died in vain. Do we dare diminish their sacrifice by our silence? Well, if your answer is “no” then you think about this: when history is written, will history say you stood by and you did nothing? Or will history say that you fought, you fought like those brave souls, you fought to preserve the memory of the young men and women that have given everything for this country and for you? We fight for freedom! We fight for freedom! We fight for freedom!

Please watch this movie and continue the fight for our freedom's in America!
