Freedom Is NEVER Free

Monday, July 4, 2011

Hey, it's the 4th of July! I have always love it---definitely one of my favorite holidays. I've got a lot of things planned for today. Some friends are coming over to have a picnic, then swim--maybe we'll play volleyball (my arms are still bruised from last time we played. haha)--and maybe we might have a band rehearsal. Or preform for some neighbors.

Last night we went to see our small-town's fireworks--they were really nice! Tomorrow I'll try to get some pictures on here : ) It's turning out to be a great Independence Day. And it's only 9:35 in the morning. But somewhere amidst all the picnics and fireworks, and red white and blue, try to remember what today is all about. Try to remember how many countless men had to die and give up everything to get us here today. Think of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence. To them, it meant much more than freedom; they were signing their own death sentence by delcaring us free of Britain. Some of them were caught and killed. The wanted a free country, though. "One Nation, under God....".... And we will "hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal..." Maybe, if you get the chance, you and your family should read the Declaration of Independence today. Because it's so much more than a historical document.

It's our declaration of independence. We're free. But remember how we got that. Freedom. Isn't. Free.




"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,  that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Libery, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
