I Agree, The Last Man Out of Vietnam Takes Out Moby Dick You Should Give Him A Metal and Purple Heart Recommendation "I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain [our Political Seats in the Senate and Congress]
In a letter to his wife, Abigail, John Adams once wrote that the declaration of our independence should be commemorated as a "Day of Deliverance" and celebrated as "the great anniversary Festival." What bravery it must have taken those revolutionaries to make such a bold declaration.
Today we celebrate—not only the courage of those who stood for independence, for the individual liberty endowed by our Creator—but also the lives and sacrifice of the heroes who have shouldered the responsibility of defending our God-given freedom.
I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom I can see the Rays of ravishing Light and Glory. I can see that the End is more than worth all the Means. -John Adams, Letter to his wife Abigail, July 3, 1776
We are forever grateful to the men and women who have taken the oath to defend America for bearing the cost of Toil and Blood and Treasure necessary to preserve our liberty.
As you celebrate the birth of America's independence, I hope you will take a moment to give thanks for those who have sacrificed and paid the ultimate price to preserve our freedom for future generations.
May God bless you and the state of Texas, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.
