Freedom is not free

In the midst of all the food, fireworks and festivities, please take a moment to pray for the men and women who serve our country today and everyday. Because of their great and continued sacrifice, we are free to speak, to educate our children and to worship the Lord, among many others, without fear.

Let us not forget the fallen soldiers who’ve gone on before us. May we always remember that freedom comes at a high price.

We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation shall have a new birth of freedom; and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” – Abraham Lincoln
