Happy 4th of July!....

I HOPE THERE ISN'T ANYONE ON MY E-MAIL LIST THAT WON'T KEEP THIS GOING.                                                   

Happy 4th of 
July!....
........... .....let' s get this started now, 
So it will be out there on the fourth!!!!
   
    
  

 

 




 


  

 

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE 
FLAG,


 


  

 

OF THE UNITED 
STATES OF AMERICA
,

 


  

 

AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR 
WHICH IT STANDS,


 


  

 

ONE 
NATION UNDER GOD
,

 


  

 

INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY

 


  

 

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! 
KEEP 
IT LIT!! KEEP 
IT LIT!
 
For 
All of our other military personnel, where ever they may 
Be
  Please 
Support all of the troops defending our Country. 

  


And God 
Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our 
Freedom.

 
 Thanks 
To them, and their sacrifices we can celebrate the 4th of July 
 
  


We must never forget who 
Gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be 
Eternally grateful. 
                                                                                           

I watched the flag 
Pass by one day, 
It fluttered in the breeze. 




A young Marine 
Saluted it, 
And then he stood at ease.. 


I looked at 
Him in uniform 
So young, so tall, so proud, 
With hair cut square 
And eyes alert 
He'd stand out in any crowd. 



I thought how many men 
Like him 
Had fallen through the years. 
How many died on foreign 
Soil 
How many mothers' tears? 


How many pilots' planes 
Shot down? 
How many died at sea 
How many foxholes were soldiers' 
Graves
No, freedom isn't free 

I heard the sound of Taps 
One night, 
When everything was still, 
I listened to the bugler 

Play 
And felt a sudden chill. 

I wondered just how many times 

That Taps had meant 'Amen,' 

When a flag had draped a 
Coffin. 
Of a brother or a friend. 




I thought of all the 
Children, 
Of the mothers and the wives, 
Of fathers, sons and 
Husbands 
With interrupted lives. 



Thought about a graveyard

At the bottom of the sea 



Of unmarked graves in 
Arlington
No, freedom isn't free. 



Enjoy Your Freedom 
&God Bless Our Troops

When 
You receive this, please stop for a moment 
And

Say a 
Prayer
 for our servicemen. 
 
Of all the gifts you could give 
A US
 Soldier, Prayer is the very best 
One
.
