America is a Gift November 14, 2016 by Staff

The other day I had a chance to speak to a group of home school students about the presidential election and citizen participation in our government. I explained that what we have here in this nation is a gift—in fact a great gift. We have freedom of speech and the right to assemble. We can worship our Creator and live according to our conscience; We can use our gifts and talents to create wealth; And we have the freedom to choose our own leaders.  On Friday, we celebrated Veterans Day—a stark reminder that this gift comes with a price, and we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we might live in freedom. Each of us as American citizens has the responsibility to be counted worthy of this great gift so that we may pass it on to the next generation.
