Thank You, Veterans

Words cannot express the gratitude I feel towards our veterans, and towards the soldiers still fighting to keep America free. We must never abandon them, and never forget their sacrifice.

"If one asks me the meaning of our flag, I say to him: It means all that the Constitution of our people, organizing for justice, for liberty, and for happiness, meant.

Our flag carries American ideas, American history, and American feelings.

This American Flag was the safeguard of liberty. It was an ordinance of liberty by the people, for the people. That it meant, that it means, and, by the blessing of God, that it shall mean to the end of time!

Henry Ward Beecher

"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."

John 15:13

"With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations."

Abraham Lincoln

God bless America, and the brave soldiers who by the grace of God made her what she is!
