Freedom is never free

Sunday, July 4th, 2004
This morning in church, our pastor read to us Red Skelton's famous commentary on The Pledge of Allegiance. Two years ago, Amy and Wendy memorized this patriotic commentary for a homeschool presentation.

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.
