Sacrifices of Others

Free. I am free because of the sacrifices of others ....

.... I have freedoms some still dream about
because of the sacrifices of others

I awaken to freedom in the morning, and fall asleep
in the shadow of the Liberty Tree, because of the
sacrifices of others
I work and play unafraid of my liberty being taken
away, because of the sacrifices of others
I live the American Dream, because of the
sacrifices of others.

While I believe that there is a Heaven and God above
and Jesus Christ who died on the cross because of His love
for me and you
I believe in my heart, that it is the love in a soldier's heart for
liberty that moves him to defend and protect the Red, White,
and Blue.....

That soldiers who pay the price for our liberty are earth's
heroes... who out of love for their country choose to sacrifice
that future generations may reap the fruit from the Liberty
Tree.

Freedom is not free! Was never free, and will never be free
As long as there exist those who believe in inequality among
men and seek to deprive any of life and liberty.

I set here in freedom today, my American sisters and
brothers,
because of the sacrifices of others.
