July 4, 1776. We honor that day long ago, and yet not so long, when our forefathers were fighting and dying for freedom. The continental congress, as representatives of each new state, made the decision that those lives would be laid down for something greater: a new nation built upon the principle of liberty.
Let’s celebrate today not just as a holiday, but as a chance to reflect on those who sacrificed everything for the dream of an American nation founded on freedom of all people. Happy birthday to the United States of America!
Here are a few patriotic quotes to help us appreciate the freedoms we share as citizens of the United States of America.
“Humanity has won its battle. Liberty now has a country.” -Marquis de Lafayette
“Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” – John F. Kennedy
“He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself.” – Thomas Paine
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” –
“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.” -Abraham Lincoln
“Liberty has never come from the government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of resistance.” -Woodrow Wilson
Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” -Mark Twain
“Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.” (Matthew 28:1-7)
“God proved His love on the Cross. When Christ hung, and bled, and died, it was God saying to the world, ‘I love you.'” -Billy Graham
“There is only one secure foundation: a genuine, deep relationship with Jesus Christ, which will carry you through any and all turmoil. No matter what storms are raging all around, you’ll stand firm if you stand on His love.” -Charles Stanley
“You must make your choice: either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon; or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.” -C. S. Lewis
Saying farewell to a year well spent. I’ve given up trying to summarize so much time into a typical blog post. Instead, I’m going to give you a bit of a preview to what’s waiting in 2016.
At the beginning of December, I signed a contract to publish my novel; more to come on that in January. My entire site will be undergoing a conversion to better promote the novel. Stay tuned for more exciting news surrounding
I have also received multiple rejections on “Rad the Pawn,” so I’ve decided to finally reward my readers by publishing the whole story here over the next five weeks.
(I promise to publish the whole thing this time).
I just want to thank all of my faithful readers. January 1, 2016 marks this blog’s six month anniversary, with visitors spanning ten countries on five continents. Your comments and readership have been an encouragement and are greatly appreciated. See you in 2016!
