A Time To Remember…

Memorial Day is a time to remember those who have sacrificed so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.  We must remember and have hearts of thankfulness!  Not only do we need to remember and have hearts of thankfulness, but we must also do our duty to preserve these freedoms for future generations. Here is a poem that encompasses this well.  If you’d like to read our Memorial Day article from last year, you can click here.

Freedom in America
Isn’t really free;
We often pay a price
To keep our liberty.

Remember those we loved,
Who fought for us, and died;
And those we never knew
For whom others mourned and cried.

At home our “war” for freedom
Is sadly overdue;
We’ve let corruption stage
A sad and grievous coup.

No longer can we brush off
Dishonesty and greed,
Lust for wealth and power;
We can’t, we won’t concede.

Complacency is weakness
Patriots can’t afford;
We have to act on wrongs
That cannot be ignored.

We must give up some time,
Spent on other pleasures,
To restore America’s freedom,
To keep America’s treasures.

Money spent on trifles
Must now go to our cause:
Get rid of the offenders,
Constitutional outlaws.

Freedom in America
Isn’t really free
It’s up to American patriots;
It’s up to you and me.

-By Joanna Fuchs

These occurrences are rather commonplace now, and have to a great extent drifted into mindless routine, especially amongst Christians, without pondering the importance of why we should be giving thanks as believers, and secondly as American citizens.  What is the most important thing that we can be thankful for?

Meet the U.S. Constitution!

 

As a part of Constitution week, we’re going to do something different today – a group post!  Each member of the team (except for me) chose a certain part of the Constitution and expounded and explained that part.  We wanted to do this to help you get more familiar with the Constitution, our governing document.
