"I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country." -Nathan Hale, age 21, in 1776 as he was hanged by the British army for spying. For 237 years, countless thousands, maybe millions have answered Freedom's call to defend America's precious liberty. One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. "Give me liberty or give me death."-Patrick Henry.
Sept. 11, 2001-terrorist attack on the USA; Dec. 7, 1941-Japanese attack Pearl Harbor; Nov, 22, 1963- JFK assassinated; Dec. 22, 1620 - Forefather's Day- Pilgrims landed at Plymouth, Mass.; each day in this great nation's history is for us to seek and proclaim God's great mercy and wisdom and protection!
Dec. 25 - God's precious gift to the world-Jesus Christ! May we Americans, in our own special way, let freedom ring from every mountainside. To God be the glory forever and ever! Class dismissed.
