I want you to close your eyes and picture in your mind the soldier at
I gave you a birthright of freedom born in the constitution and now your children graduate too illiterate to read it.
I fought in the snow barefoot to give you the freedom to vote and you stay at home because it rains.
I left my family destitute to give you freedom of speech and you remain silent on critical issues, because it is bad for business.
I orphaned my children to give you a government to serve you and it has stolen democracy from the people.
It’s the airman not the reporter who gives you the freedom of press.
It’s the sailor not the poet who gives you the freedom of speech.
It’s the marine not the campus organizer who allows you to demonstrate.
It’s the soldier who salutes the flag, serves the flag, whose coffin is draped with the flag that allows the protestor to burn that flag!
“Lord hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in our time of need.”
-Pastor John Hagee
