Independence

Red and white and blue
waving in the breeze...
the freedom that we so enjoy
is seen there with such ease!
Peace--it almost takes for granted
that sweet freedom's cost;
celebration almost blinds
to lives that have been lost.

"Oh let me never take for granted
prices that were paid;
nor allow me to forget
the sacrifices made
so that I can celebrate
the way that I know how;
God, thank You for liberty
in this land You allow!"

We are free because God blesses America. 
Sure, we fought, but Whose battle is it?
Sure, we fight to obtain and retain it, but Who brings that victory?
As you celebrate today, don't forget to thank God for the privilege.  For He is The Author of Liberty.
