A Red-Letter Day
What a vision.
How fortunate we are to enjoy the bountiful benefits of their sacrifices and perseverance.
CALL ME GRATEFUL
Today I am especially thankful to have been born in the United States of America where liberty is my birthright.
LET FREEDOM RING
Think about it.
We live in the freest country in the world. People risk their lives every day to come here. They thirst for the liberty we take for granted because they’ve experienced hardships we cannot fathom. For many, the ultimate dream is to become an American citizen.
|Old Glory, Long May She Wave|
Remember the Price Others Paid so We could Be Free.
Never Demean Their Sacrifices by Mistaking LIBERTY forLICENSE*.
Seek Understanding of our Fellowmen.
Put Aside the Desire for Revenge.
Do Our Part to Promote Unity.
Remain True to our Founding Fathers’ Vision
Not just Today but Everyday,
May Good triumph over Evil.
*License: Lack of Restraint.
(Think about the difference.)
Please join me in praying for our nation.
Mighty God, thank you for allowing us to live in this great country. Forgive us when we take our freedom for granted and turn to selfish pursuits. Show us how to be responsible citizens. Change our hearts so we seek to understand others instead of majoring on differences. Help us put on humility so we are able to put aside affronts and lift others up. Lead us to stand shoulder-to-shoulder against hatred and every form of tyranny. I ask these things in the Name of the Mighty Prince of Peace. Amen.
