This Great Invention – America
When we think about our Founding Fathers, and their fight for a Free America, we find ourselves concluding that the hardest part of making our Nation was the actual War that took place. But don’t be too quick to think that once our American Revolution was over that the hardest part was over – that’s just not true. Why? Because they were determined to make an all-new Nation owned by “We the People”, not run by a few at the top. This caused our Nation’s document authors, with the Great Help of Almighty God, to invent something all new – “This Great Invention – America”. On this 4 th of July Special Program I am taking us all on a new adventure – to give to us the true and exciting “back story” of how our Founders came to invent America.
“Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation. For tis better to be alone than in bad company.”
George Washington (Written as a Boy)
“The philosophy of our school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next.”
“Many men fail because they quit too soon. They lose faith when the signs are against them. They do not have the courage to hold on, to keep fighting in spite of that which seems insurmountable. If more of us would strike out and attempt the impossible, we very soon would find the truth of that old saying – nothing is impossible”.
Doctor C.E. Welch, Founder of Welch's Grape Juice
“I regret i have but one life to lose for my country.”
Nathan Hale, just before he was hanged by the British army
“Never let yourself be persuaded that any one great man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America; when America consists of one leader and 250 million followers, it will no longer be America.”
President Dwight Eisenhower
“What we obtain for too cheap a price, we esteem too lightly.”
“America is great because America is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, it will cease to be great.”
French Philosopher, Alexis De Tocqueville 1840
“Son, remember that God is your only sure trust.”
George Washington’s Mother
“You cannot lift your children to a higher level than that on which you live yourself.”
“Duty, honor, country. These three hallowed words reverently dictate what a soldier ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are the soldier’s rallying post to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when all hope is gone. Duty…honor…country.”
General Douglas Macarthur
“The spirit of this city and this nation will not be defeated because our deeply rooted faith will sustain us”.
