Lives given freely in battle as well as in life have made this country. Patriots whose love for country burned so bright that they willing left their last full measure on battle fields across this world. Citizens who desired freedom and a full life left wives, husbands and children along trails from East to West – looking for the American Dream.
This is their day.
This is your day.
This is our day.
To honor them, to remember them and to remember their dream.
Enjoy your day, take this gift to your heart and hold it tight.
You decide if we keep it – not some Marxist in the Whitehouse, no some fool craving adoration sitting in the House or Senate and not some governor ruling his state like a prince.
Our gift of freedom, our rights as citizens come from God:
“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. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Few saw the need for the Bill of Rights, because their inherent truth was simply “self-evident”. They are a gift from God . . . .
Let us enjoy a day of celebration, remember those who have made this day possible – our citizens – and commit ourselves to preserving this God given republic for our generations to come!
God Bless America!
