Wednesday, 04 July 2007 - Birthright

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful that I was born an American. I pray that our country will soon have compassionate and visionary leaders who work diligently to preserve rather than usurp our innate rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. ~Abraham Lincoln

They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ~Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

We cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. ~Edward R. Murrow

For this blessing, I am grateful.
