Let Freedom Ring - Day 5

 Grand Old Flag
Seeing the Red, White and Blue on Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, & Labor Day makes the heart swell with pride.  There is no flag on this earth that represents freedom the same way that Old Glory does.

It seems as though we have lost our way somehow.  We are more interested in political correctness than being right.  We are more interested in our rights than our responsibilities as citizens and we believe it is the government's responsibility to provide us with life, liberty, and happiness rather than create and protect the environment under which these things can grow and prosper.  The result is that we, the people have left many of the things that made us great and have attached our hopes and dreams to politicians and programs that have never proven to be in our best interest.  The truth is, politicians did not make this nation great, God did.  Men from multiple backgrounds and faiths, led by the Almighty formed this great nation and authored the documents that established the Union. 56 men signed the Declaration of Independence. 27 of the were educated and trained as ministers.  Most of our forefathers were men of God.  Look at the political landscape today and it is not hard to see that we have left the God of Our Fathers.  Maybe it's time to return to the one who has blessed us far beyond our dreams.
