Happy Independence Day

Stop and say a prayer today in thanksgiving for American independence. Also pray today for all of those who fought for her independence, and who serve today in the armed forces.

Here are a few interesting quotes:

  • Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me liberty or give me death! - Patrick Henry

  • Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech. - Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

  • It is seldom that liberty of any kind is lost all at once. - David Hume (1711-1776)

  • Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. - George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
