My 1st I'm in love series...

The It's Friday, I'm In Love Series
 
And I am totally in love with...
 
...OUR FREEDOM...
 
The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.
 
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
 
 
The patriot's blood is the seed of Freedom's tree.
 
~ Thomas Campbell
 
 
Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.
 
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower
 
 
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.
 
~ M. Grundler
 
 
Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.
 
~ Napoleon Bonaparte
 
 
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
 
~ Thomas Paine
 
 
You can have peace. Or you can have freedom. Don't ever count on having both at once.

~ Robert A. Heinlein
 

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.

~ Abraham Lincoln
 


Freedom is that instant between when someone tells you to do something and when you decide how to respond.

~Jeffrey Borenstein
 


Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err. It passes my comprehension how human beings, be they ever so experienced and able, can delight in depriving other human beings of that precious right.
 
~ Mahatma Gandhi
 
 
We are driven by five genetic needs:
survival, love and belonging, power, freedom, and fun.
 
~ William Glasser
 
 
No one is free when others are oppressed.
 
~ Author Unknown
 

I hope you all remember and pray for those serving our country and our freedom at this very moment.  They are away from their loved ones...fighting for what we take for granted daily.  OUR FREEDOM!!!!

Thank you to our wonderful Nation.
