God Bless America
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.
from America the Beautiful Katherine Lee Bates
"Oh, thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust":
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
"The strength of a nation lies in the homes of its people." Abraham Lincoln
Today is our country's birthday. It is a day of remembrance. What are we remembering?
Take a moment beyond the picnics, the fireworks, the parties and celebrations, and tell your kids they have freedom because of this day. To this day we still defend that FREEDOM. Our nation is only as strong as the courage, the morals, and the faith we pass on to the next generation. One Nation Under God. May it always be so. Pray for Revival....Pray for our brave military persons.
God Bless America.
