  • America's Birthday

  • America the Beautiful
    Oh beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain.
    For purple mountains majesty above the fruited plain.
    America, America God shed His grace on thee,
    and crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining see.

  • Americans truly take a lot for granted. Forget the football "heroes" and movie "stars". We need to be reminded of the price of freedom. Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul; the other for your freedom.

  • Memorial Thank You:
    For knowing I have a place to wake up to a new day
    For the right to speak my mind and kneel quietly to pray

    For the dreams I strive to reach …for the love I am free to give
    For the laughter I share with my dearest friends … a necessity to live

    For security and peace of mind that all is safe sound
    For growing, sharing, hoping, caring there is goodness all around

    For all of this we're grateful for whisper soft and loudly sing…
    Their duty and their sacrifice have let our freedom ring.
