Independence Day. 4th of July. The American holiday that celebrates independence, freedom and liberty evokes different passions for people. For me, it always stirs a deep emotional response as I consider all the sacrifices made throughout the USA’s history by people believing their lives were not such a steep price to pay for future generations to live in a country free of tyranny and totalitarianism. We seem to be on the precipice of losing our freedoms to an ever encroaching government in this day and age, but those sacrifices made in the past will be honored by me and my family in the present. God bless you and God save America. And Happy 4th of July!

One of my patriotic flag images supporting the 2A sold as a T-shirt from my gallery on Fine Art America.
Many thanks to the buyer from Castle Rock, CO for liking this enough to buy it for someone to WEAR!!! Would be fun to see this out in public someday.
While many people tend to treat the Memorial Day holiday as an extended weekend, the kickoff to summertime grilling, or even a time to throw a party…
It is much more than that.
It is a time to remember those who have died in military service for our country. They died serving to protect the freedoms we so often take for granted and now even see eroding away around us.
It is a time to reflect on their sacrifices and the importance of the freedoms and American way of life they died to protect and preserve.
Most important… it is an opportunity to honor their ultimate sacrifices by being the best American citizens we can be. That means being an American that stands for freedom, stands against evil and corruption in all their forms, and honors the flame of a Christian-nation vision first held aloft by our Founding Fathers.
May this Memorial Day weekend find you blessed and willing to reflect on the debt we owe to those who have sacrificed their lives to preserve our American way of life. The pen of Abraham Lincoln was mighty and I cannot improve upon the words he wrote and then spoke during his Gettysburg Address:
“… we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
God bless you and yours during this upcoming Memorial Day weekend.
