The 4th of July

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. 
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."
~Ronald Reagan~

 "If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and 
silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter."
~George Washington~

 "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
~Thomas Jefferson~

"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."
~Abraham Lincoln~

"Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, 
the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and 
refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die."
~Dwight D. Eisenhower~

"In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved."
~Franklin D. Roosevelt~

"Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!"
~Samuel F. Smith~
