My Mother and Father : Shirley & Rene
Though I did not know my father well, I am blessed to be born in the land of the free. I love it so much I to would be willing to give my life to preserve it. I encourage us to remember this day what Three great presidents said her citizens must do to show our devotion and love for America .
" IN GOD WE TRUST"
George Washington: “It is the duty of nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.” — “The propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which heaven itself has ordained.”
Abraham Lincoln: “All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated in this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong. All things most desirable for man’s welfare, here and hereafter are to be found portrayed in it.”— “Intelligence, patriotism, Christianity, and a firm reliance on Him, who has never yet forsaken this favored land, are still competent to adjust, in the best way, all our present difficulty.”
— “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.“I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land.”— “The First Amendment was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”— “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
My plea for us to remember.
America is only great as long as it lives up to her source of freedom God and His self governing principles he has given His children. These principles have been taught for all mankind's good. No individual,community or nation will survive for long its disregard history has proved again and again.
