The cost of freedom Did you ever set down and think about what a opportunity you have as a American citizen,? The right to drive your car anywhere in the country, and the right to chose the type job you want to work at, Some nations have no rights at all hardly, these people are stranded in a world of suffering with no freedom to chose or ever better their lives, hopelessness without ever having any other better opportunity , wars have been fought for the cause of freedom , young men getting off airplanes in the republic o f Vietnam and the shores of the late nineteen fifties Korean conflict between the north and south. How many men have you told that you appreciate their service of war time events? Not much right? Well isn't it about time for you did? Think of the nineteen and twenty years young men that lost their lives for our nation in these wars of world war one and two and the Korean war and of course Vietnam, I was fifty three years old when the first person looked me square in the eyes and said ; thanks man for what your did for our nation, this touched me so much I almost was in tears to just thinks someone cared enough about me to show gratitude for my two years service for our great nation, the greatest men alive established this country with the slogan in “GOD WE TRUST” let us never allow this to be taken off our currency , and let our flag wave its motions of freedom a man said I looked and old glory remained flying her banner, the red line represent the blood that has been shed for the cause of man freedom, the white represent the purity of God and his people, the blue stands for freedom , that shines as a cloudless spring day, freedom means to me smiles, the playing of children in the park, the smile of the preacher who loves and greets his flock with the grace and mercy of God, it means I can sing my song , I can fly above the blue sky I cannot express my love to my fellow man, so next time my beloved red blooded American you get the chance thank a Veteran , and see if the blessing of almighty God don't make chill bump come to your body, give honor to which honor to whom honor is due and tribute, we owe the service men and woman more than this nation can ever pay back, get a American spirit and let freedom rein , and never be ashamed to express how you love being a citizen of Good old America the land of the free and the home of the brave, written by Vietnam veteran Stanley McQueen Kentucky veteran---- Tweet
