Preserving America's Past to Protect Her Future

Remembering
America's
Greatness.

American FreedomThe American Flag

The American Nation
and Her People


From their earliest
beginnings,
Americans sought
freedom.

The Founding
Fathers
made the dream
of freedom
a reality
with the signing
of the
Declaration
of Independence
238 years ago
and the
War
against England
that followed.

Today we still
enjoy these freedoms.
And although
America's
enemies
have tried
to destroy
our spirit and
our way of life,
we stand
strong
ready again
to defend
these
freedoms.


May God
remind us
of our past
and
prepare us
for our future.

God Bless America.

God Bless America,
Land that I love.



Stand beside her
and guide her
Through the night
with the light
from above.



From the mountains
to the prairies
To the oceans
white with foam.



God bless America,
My Home Sweet Home.



God bless America,
My Home Sweet Home.
