The quality or state of being free.
The absence of necessity, coercion, or constraint in choice or action.
Liberation from slavery or restraint or from the power of another.
America, a FREE country. This is my country. I wave the flag freely. It represents all that I love about America. Freedom. It is precious to those who don't take it for granted. It is even more precious to those who don't have it and long for it.
a source of protection or shelter.
United States Marines...
Take note. War is not just about taking out the enemy who would suppress freedom. It is also about liberating the ones who live under the tyranny of oppression.
Our men and women go. They choose to go. They fight for what they believe in. They know the taste of freedom. They see the despair of those who don't have it. They defend our freedom at all costs. They attack all injustice that would seek to keep others from living in it.
These people are HEROES. Not just to us...but to others also.
Take a good look at the photo above that someone shared with us from halfway across the globe. This says it all.
Don't dishonor the ones who give their all for Freedom for others, simply because you don't like war. Nobody likes war. Support your military heroes. Pray for them.
Honor them when you see them in your daily activities. Thank them.
Freedom isn't free....and it isn't a given. It has to be defended.
God bless them. God protect them. God give them success.
All of them. And today...this mom says OOO-RAH. For all of you, especially those who carry Semper Fi in your hearts... I honor you. You are in my prayers.
God bring them ALL home safe.
