Hi friends. As we get caught up in the politics of our time,
let’s take a moment to rest and reflect, remembering our love for God who has blessed our country so,
our love for the people who have given of themselves,
and our love for our land, in all its splendor.
America the Beautiful!
Words by Katharine Lee Bates,
Melody by Samuel Ward
O beautiful for spacious skies,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
O beautiful for pilgrim feet
O beautiful for heroes proved
In liberating strife.
And mercy more than life!
Till all success be nobleness
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
“Sell not virtue to purchase wealth, nor Liberty to purchase power.”
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” John F. Kennedy
“Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.” Ronald Reagan
