There was a cost. There was the cross. Freedom isn’t free.
With God’s help, Our country is standing because of those who were willing to pay the cost of freedom. The early days of fighting for freedom the Revolutionary War brought an unknown amount of casualties. Again, Freedom isn’t free.
America has always stepped up because America understands the cost of freedom. Why? Because America was founded on Christian values. The flag waves because of Christian values. Because we know in this country without His Holy Spirit, freedom can’t exist. That is why America is always on the front lines, standing tall against the rising darkness that brings bondage to the people. Those men and women whom we honor today, who gave the ultimate sacrifice, were on those front lines against this darkness. They stood for the flag, they stood for the constitution, they stood for the National Anthem and they stood for freedom.
If anyone should understand the cost of freedom – it is the people who have been given freedom through the cross of Jesus Christ.
Our freedoms are being compromised every day. We are losing so many of those liberties and freedoms. Our constitution is being criticized and under attack every day. Those men and women whom we honor today “stood up for freedom” so that we could be free. They gave their lives; the cost was high. We cannot let that cost be for nothing.
As we enjoy the freedom of backyard cookouts with friends and family, remember those who fought and died for it.
“You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve YOUR freedom. I hope you will make a good use of it.” -John Adams
