In Honor of Our Founding Fathers

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.

I love our founding fathers. They had such courage. They had faith that what they were trying to accomplish was right. They believed in God.  They prayed. I so appreciate what they sacrificed.  I love our history.  I can't imagine what so many good, honorable men and women had to go through so we could feel freedom.

I fear for the future of our country.  I pray for the leaders to be honest and make good decisions.  I don't believe much of that is going on in Washington these days.  I worry for my children.  I believe we are headed in the wrong direction.

The past few years I have been trying to educate myself on the issues of the day.  I vote. I write letters to my elected officials.  I want to be able to say that I understand and do what I can to make a difference.

And if I say anymore I will embarrass my kids like I do in the carpool,when I yell at the talk radio shows.  I can get very opinionated.

Nice Posts. I just caught up. We have a great country and I am a citizen. Wahoo! It was hard to do...not intellectually, but emotionally...but so glad I did!
