 Carol's Journey

Freedom comes at a price.
It often involves sacrifice.
Our country is free today,
It may not always be that way.

Men and women daily risk their lives.
They leave children, husbands, and wives.
All to serve their country with pride,
Never wavering in their passions deep inside.

May God bless America and keep us strong.
Let us honor those who fight the battle long.
Remember to daily support them in prayer,
And uphold their families when they are not there.

Let us proudly raise the flag on this Independence Day,
Knowing that our freedom may someday be taken away.
America has a strong heritage from shore to shore.
May we do our part to preserve freedom forevermore.
