They Sacrificed Their Lives So That We May Be Free

30 May 2011


"As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,
While God is marching on."

~The Battle Hymn of the Republic

To those who have fought on the front lines, to those who have sacrificed more than we could ever imagine, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for the service you have given to our beloved country. I am so grateful for each and every one of you.

As we all go about our Memorial Day festivities today, let us not forget what this holiday is really about: the sacrifices so many men and women gave in the service of our dear country, so that we may remain "one nation under GOD, with liberty and justice for all." They gave their all for us. We can never repay the debt we owe to them.

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance." ~Psalm 33:12

3 epistles:

  1. "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    -Patrick Henry

    A very nice tribute, Ma'am.
