 Carol's Journey

INDEPENDENCE DAY (Acrostic)


I t was 1776, an event worthy of celebration
N ation founders were gathered in unification
D eclaration of Independence was signed
E vidence to all, freedoms clearly defined
P eople agreed with the principles therein
E ven through wars over and over again
N ow our country has left those same values
D etermined to rewrite firmly established rules
E nter the office of our President and you will see
N egotiations threatening morality for you and me
C onsider his views on gay marriage and abortion
E verything else he wants to undo through legislation

D ear fellow Americans, stand up for freedom today
A ll of us together can make a difference everyday
Y oung and old, write your congressmen and pray

Carol Salter for 7/4/09

Clark, Abraham - Clark was a Presbyterian,
and said once, "Nothing short of the
Almighty Power of God can Save us-it is
not in our Numbers, our Union, or our
Valour that I dare trust."
(Signer of Declaration of Independence)
