Until All Are Free
Freedom is an interesting concept. It is something that can be easily taken for granted or not even thought about until it is threatened in some capacity or gone all together. Fighting for freedom for every victim of sex trafficking is a driving force for Guardian Group. As we celebrate the freedom this country offers us take a moment to reflect on what it took to get here and the work that still needs to be done.
“In my view, Independence Day represents and stands for what Guardian Group is all about, freedom. We take time to remember our freedom, something we can often take for granted. We honor the sacrifice it took for our freedom and do that by living as people who are free. Guardian Group exists to pursue those who don’t have freedom, especially children. Our slogan ‘until all are free’ not only motivates our team, but it also embodies everyone on our team and the partners with whom we work. As the Declaration of Independence states, ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.'”
– Jeff Keith – Founder + CEO
“As we celebrate the freedoms that make the United States such a special country, I think it’s important to consider what it really takes to secure these freedoms. I recently retired after nearly 26 years in the US Army. I served across the globe and saw combat in six countries. I’d say that I played a role in securing freedom for the citizens of the United States. Although I played a role in securing the freedoms that we’ll celebrate this weekend, I didn’t have a great appreciation for all that it really takes to secure our freedom. Freedom for everyone, in every corner of America. Coming to work at Guardian Group opened my eyes to the role our first responders, community leaders, schools, hospitals, and places of worship play in securing our freedoms. I’m gaining an appreciation for the effort communities must yield to secure our freedom. Freedom isn’t just secured by the shield and sword of our military; freedom is secured by all who enjoy it. If you’re reading this, I ask that you ponder: What does my community need me to do, have I done enough?”
– Nate Prussian – Chief Operating Officer
