Freedom is never free (Revisited)

Friday, July 4th, 2008
Six years ago, Amy and Wendy memorized Red Skelton's patriotic commentary on The Pledge of Allegiance:

Image:Freedom is never free (Revisited)

Red's commentary offers a glimpse into the meaning of these words and what it means to recite the Pledge as an American.

If you have never heard it, I invite you to watch this video from July 4, 2002.

Here's something else to think about: Freedom is never free.

Whether at the physical or spiritual level, the freedom that we enjoy today came at a great cost.


This Fourth of July, let us give thanks and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf.

Here’s a valuable July 4 tradition

My friend, Meg Edwards, shared with me that her family tradition is to read the Declaration of Independence each July 4. What a wonderful idea. We plan to do this, starting tonight.

Thanks, Meg!
