With honor & dignity

"Train up a child in the way he should go, Even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6
"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."

Are you grateful to be living in a free nation? Teach your children our history. Tell them why they, too, can live in a free nation. Encourage them to be patriotic. Teach them to be proud of the US flag and all it represents. Teach them about the sacrifices that make this nation #1 in the world. Teach them that our freedom is a privilege that must be fought for - on a daily basis. A great place to get the facts is here.

Be sure to thank a soldier, enlisted or veteran, when you're out and about today. I pray their sacrifice puts a knot in your throat and brings tears of gratitude to your eyes.

We shall value life for the one who protect our nation and died with dignity.

Yes, I am a flag waving patriot. I feel I taught our children that too.
Freedom isn't free and I thank God that I live here.
