God Bless America

via Great Patriots

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.”


“We must be free, not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.”


“Each of us deserves the freedom to pursue our own version of happiness. No one deserves to be bullied.” —Obama

“We’re blessed with the opportunity to stand for something—for liberty and freedom and fairness. And these are things worth fighting for, worth devoting our lives to.”


If you paid attention, TJC never states an author’s name, but we present as “Via” the Holy Spirit—as men pray, edit, and share before we publish. Today, we celebrate the 4th of July via the amazing patriots that have gained and secured our great American experiment in self-governance.

I like you can barely sing the national anthem - choking up to sing, “O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” I’m thrilled to hear our kids state,

“I pledge allegiance

To the flag of the United States of America

And to the republic

For which it stands

one Nation under God,


With liberty and justice for all.”

And I close my eyes and say amen when our elected officials finish an address proclaiming, “God Bless America.”

Why? Because we live in a very special place where a small group of men committed treason, and clearly stated their resolve; “for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Daily Battle Order:

Enjoy some beers (not Bud-Light), some burgers, and fireworks, but make it a point to reflect on the celebration of bold men who risked it all stating, “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.”

It’s now your turn to ensure our grandchildren will celebrate the same.

I really liked the various quotes at the beginning of this DBO.
