National Flag Day -6-14-22 1

Greetings!


 
All of us should be flying the stars and stripes today. June 14th is National Flag Day. We should be proud to be Americans in a country guided by God, founded in freedom and liberty. Our United States flag was adopted with 13 stars and 13 alternating stripes representing the original 13 colonies. In 1777 the American
Flag was adopted by congress. Flag Day was established by proclamation in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson and as a national holiday in 1949 by an act of Congress. Today like every day, we should proudly fly the American Flag.


"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."


1Thessalonians 5:21 “but test them all - hold on to what is good”. In our 246 year history, the United States has been put to many tests. Our republic has survived by we as citizens, pledging to be “one Nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. There have been times in our history were we had to fight for these ideals. Over 1.1 million Americans have died fighting to preserve our liberty. During our civil war, we put our country to the test to right a wrong. Nearly 500,000 Americans died to abolish slavery. Holding on to liberty and justice isn’t easy but if we are truly a nation under God, we can hold on to the ideals expressed in the Preamble of our Constitution.


“We, the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”.


Being indivisible is pretty hard to achieve. As our country was divided on slavery, we today are being divided on issues like abortion, sex, gender ideology, race, nationality, guns, political parties, and religion or lack thereof. Even with differences, we can unite to protect the Constitution of the United States and the goal of liberty and justice for all.


In less than 3 weeks on July 4th, we will be celebrating the Declaration of Independence from the then tyrannical government of England. As Christians we have a duty to elect those who share our beliefs by voting. If you are not registered to vote, you have until July 5th to register for the August 8th Primary Election. You can use this link to REGISTER TO VOTE, or to change your address. Early ballots will be mailed on July 6th you can mail them in or drop them off at designated drop off locations or, be like me, and go to the polls on Election Day and vote in person.


John Jay said  “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation, to select and prefer Christians for their rulers”.
