I don’t understand how some people can be so flippant regarding our nation. They take so much for granted – ignorant regarding the price that has been paid for our “land of the free.” They seem not to care how many gave their fortunes and their lives to establish us as a “nation under God.” For people who diligently obey the laws. For first responders who take great risks. For soldiers who died. For those who returned wounded in body and spirit.
I am quoting from a FB friend (Clyde M. Hughes) who wrote the following:
“I stood six times, 15 feet from Union soldiers who died prematurely as a result of their wounds at Present Arms while the Flag covered caskets passed by or a folded flag was carried to accompany cremains. Six more times we stood at attention while the sad song of Taps was played. I do it for the honor of the tens of thousands buried there. I do it for the great idea of America. I do it because God birthed this nation to be the beacon to the world. I do it for with all my heart I know that even with all our faults, God loves America still.”
Vote for “one nation under God.”
