A 4th of July Tribute

Received this in an email from a good friend.  Thought I will pass it on early.

 

Happy 4th of July!................ ......let's  get this started now, So it will be out there on the fourth!!!!

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO  THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS,

ONE NATION UNDER GOD,

INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY
 
AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!

KEEP IT LIT!! KEEP IT LIT!

For All of our other military personnel, where ever they may Be
Please Support all of the troops defending our Country.

And  God Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our Freedom.
Thanks

To them, and their sacrifices we can celebrate the 4th of July

PLEASE KEEP IT GOING TO YOUR FRIENDS, DON'T LET THE FLAME DIE OUT!
PLEASE KEEP THE SPIRIT OF THIS GOING

We must never forget  who
Gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should  be
Eternally grateful

I watched the  flag
Pass by one day,
It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine
Saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
 
I looked at
Him in uniform
So young, so  tall, so proud,
With hair cut square
And eyes alert
He'd  stand out in any crowd.
 
I thought how many  men
Like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died  on foreign
Soil
How many mothers' tears?
 
How many pilots'  planes
Shot down?
How many died at sea
How many foxholes were soldiers'
Graves?
No, freedom isn't free.
 
I heard the sound of Taps
One night,
When everything was  still,
I listened to the bugler Play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant 'Amen,'
 
When a flag had draped a
Coffin.
Of a brother or a friend.
 
I  thought of all the
Children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and
Husbands
With interrupted lives.
 
I Thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the  sea
 
Of unmarked graves in
Arlington.
No, freedom isn't free.
 
Enjoy Your Freedom
&God Bless Our Troops

please... Of  all the gifts you could give A US Soldier, Prayer is the
very best  One.

I personally think you are misinformed by assuming that "freedom is not free" within our current situation. First of all, the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan were not sent to war to "protect our freedoms" here in the USA. Our enemies, the so-called "terrorists" cannot take away our freedoms. If you think otherwise, might I ask you this: are you any more "free" in this country now that we've invaded Iraq and Afghanistan? Do you have more civil rights and civil liberties since we've been occupying their countries? Of course not. In fact, since 9/11 the Bush administration has chopped up our Constitution by way of legislation like the Patriot Act.

The most ironic thing about this whole issue is how it is the "terrorists" in Iraq, Palestine, and Lebanon who are truly fighting for their solidarity and freedom from occupation. Personally, I have much more respect for a Hizballah "terrorist" fighting for an independent Lebanon than I do a US soldier who was told he'd receive benefits from the US military if he agreed to go to Iraq and kill for American interest.

Think what you want, because I know there's no way my comments can change your mind, but when you're spreading nonsense about how Bush and company sent us to war to defend Americans' freedom, I feel as though I must correct you.
