Chapter 7, Page 4, Book 18


My country, ’tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims’ pride
From mountainside
Let freedom ring!

Samuel Francis Smith

Freedom 


The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.

Thomas Jefferson


Today I’m giving thanks for our country, for our immigrant ancestors who came here, for their years of struggles, and for others that sacrificed so much to build our great country.  

I’m thankful for those that have defended our county and made it the land of the brave and home of the free.  

I’m thankful for this place in which I raised a family, where I could work and worship in freedom.


The price of freedom is responsibility, but it is a bargain, because freedom is priceless.

Hugh Downs
