"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

Memorial Day freedom...

I'm not a lover of war
but I am a lover of freedom
 and sometimes you can't have one without the other
"I have never advocated war except as a means of peace."  
Ulysses S. Grant

{Plaque beside my grandfather's grave..}

I don't wish for any American to have to take up arms to defend my freedom
but I am beyond grateful that so many have willingly done so.

To those 
who carry arms for me and my family..

All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899
