I really don’t have a lot to add to what I wrote last year. I will always be thankful for everyone who has ever given their life so that I could be free.
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
As for God, His way is perfect;
The word of the LORD is proven;
He is a shield to all who trust in Him.
Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
