In Honor Of July 4th; via A Friend and Fellow Blogger

Freedom certainly isn’t free –  God Bless Our Military Men and Women Serving Our Country Under Very Difficult Circumstances! And God Bless America!
 

 

I HOPE THERE ISN’T ANYONE ON  MY E-MAIL LIST THAT WON’T KEEP THIS GOING.
Happy 4th of  July!….

Let’ s get this started now,
So it will be out there on the fourth!

 
I  PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE

FLAG,
OF THE

UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA
 ,AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR
WHICH  IT STANDS,


ONE
NATION UNDER  GOD
,
  
INDIVISIBLE,
 
WITH   
LIBERTY
AND JUSTICE  FOR ALL!  
KEEP IT LIT!!

 

KEEP IT  LIT! 
For  all of our other military personnel, where ever they may  be.
 
Please
Support all of the troops  defending our Country. 

And God  Bless our Military


who are protecting our Country for our  Freedom.
Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate  the 4th of July. 
 

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.  

Enjoy Your  Freedom


and  
God Bless Our Troops.
When you receive this,


please stop for a moment
and say a prayer for our  servicemen.


Of all the gifts you could give  a 
U.S. Soldier, prayer is the very best  one.
MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA
AND MAY AMERICA BLESS GOD!!

Thank you Len for sending this to me, and yes I will keep it going!!  God bless you, America and her troops!!!
