We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful.

I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.

I looked at him in uniform;
so young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert,
he'd stand out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him
had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil;
how many mothers' tears?

How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!

I heard the sound of Taps one night,
when everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant 'Amen.'
When a flag had draped a coffin
of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children,
of the mothers and the wives,
of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea.
Of unmarked graves in Arlington .
NO FREEDOM ISN'T FREE

The words "Child" and "terminal illness" should never share the same sentence! Those who care-do, others question!

Amen Doc We have let this country that so many have given their life to fall apart !
If we all will just bow to God and turn from our wicked ways then He will hear our prayers.
We have many good Men and Women in uniform who go to the front of the lines to keep Freedom in America but there is an unseen Lion seeking whom he can destroy and he is the devil himself by letting his evil take control of so many minds.
We must Wake Up America and put our Shields of Armor on and become the Nation we once were before it's too late.
God first before Anything and their are many that are trying to take Him out of the picture But they won't succeed.
Jesus was the First to put His All on the Cross and His blood was shed for all that will come and acknowledge He is the Son of God. Repent and give Him thanks for taking Our sins away and turn from our evil ways.
I pray God heals this Nation and keep her one Nation under God ! Amen...

Amen! [pray] [pray]

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

AMEN! I have served my country for nigh on 50 years and am proud of it, but things are not looking good, only GOD can fix this and we must pray.
