Our Founding Fathers

There is no greater love, honor and courage then the sacrifices that our founding fathers and men and women of the armed services have given to us.

Where would we be if our 56 founders kept silent and our men and women of armed services did not defend us against our past and present enemies?

The 4th of July is a day of celebration for the USA. It’s the day we commemorate our founding fathers who had the courage to sign the Declaration of Independence.

However, when our founding founders signed the Declaration of Independence they didn’t celebrate.

They knew that they would immediately be hunted, tortured, imprisoned or killed for signing it.

They had everything to lose and nothing to gain except the hope that some day, in the future, our citizens would be free.

Most of them lived comfortable lives before they made their sacrifices for us. They had families with children, farms and nearly half of them were lawyers or justices. They wrote:

“For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.”

The two key words in this statement is “Divine providence”.

Our founding fathers knew they were guided to do the Lord’s will regardless the punishments they would face by the British military.

Those men understood the divine rewards would be greater than any earthly comforts they could ever have.

Our founding fathers had the type of courage and strength that only the Lord cam provide.

  1. that is all correct every single word. nowadays people think there freedom is for free, they do not want to sacrifice anything. That is a big problem.
