Freedom isn't free

The many freedoms we enjoy came at a very high price...paid for by others, many of whom are buried in foreign lands. May we NEVER forget to be grateful. We have so many reasons to be the most grateful of all countries. Historically, Americans who went off to war have always fought for the right reasons, willingly and with honor. We are a vain and forgetful species. If only we would learn to hold on tightly to the right things with uncompromising steel. If only each and every one of us would stand up for those 'right things' on a daily basis - not just believe in them, but STAND on them and really live up to what others have fought and died for. We haven't yet forfeited the freedom to do it with fearless and unrelenting joy, yes JOY. We should be HAPPY that we can stand on wholesome principles without being endangered. If we do lose ground there, it will happen because we let it happen. I pray for our country, I hope you do too.

To all who served and continue to...Thank You. To all who have lost loved ones, a Thank You is so small, but, I hope it helps to see people in this country honoring your fallen loved one by living as grateful citizens and with sincere, humbled hearts remembering who pays for our ongoing safety and freedoms. It isn't the politicians, it our neighbor's son or daughter.

Thank you Shery. I am praying for our country, we need it now more than ever. Only through God and the truth can we survive the coming storm. I believe there are many of us that are looking to the Founders and their faith in God and the hand He had in the creation of this greatest nation. God bless our troops that have and will keep us free.
