Freedom is never free.

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ~Mark Twain, Notebook, 1935

    I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him. ~Abraham Lincoln

    One of the misfortunes of our time is that in getting rid of false shame, we have killed off so much real shame as well. ~Louis Kronenberger, Company Manners, 1954

    Very true words by Twain.

    The love for our Republican Country-that one nation under God-makes everyone a patriot, timid or not. I will lay down my life for this country and die for her before I will see the day this nation is under a false god, the moon god, Allah.

    May all of the living veterans, fighting and honorably discharged, be blessed with abundant blessings from our God, the only true God, and for those who have given their lives may they be properly honored today by all American citizens who enjoy the freedoms they fought for. ~amen!

      Knowing the sacrifices our warriors have made for us is very humbling. Brave men and women who DIED to give us the freedom to speak our opinions, to live our lives as we see fit and to know we are safe.

      At least for now.
