The Price of Freedom

"Those who would give up
an essential liberty
for temporary security,
deserve neither liberty
nor security."
~ Benjamin Franklin ~

Our forefathers knew perilous times
of spilt blood on the sod,
They battled to preserve the creed:
one nation under God.

Since then the bold and brave have fought
on land and sky and sea,
courageous, valiant heroes died
to keep this country free.

For freedom is a priceless thing,
a gift beyond compare ~
A privilege immeasurable,
maintained by fervent prayer.

Americans, take heed
to what our forefathers held fast:
Unless our faith be firm in God
this nation shall not last.
