Freedom is not Free

By July 2, 2008 No Comments

Here in the United States, we celebrate this week our independence. What a great country with an abundance of freedoms and opportunities. I had the privilege of interviewing a WWII veteran this week for Live On Purpose Radio, and gained a greater appreciation for the cost of freedom. Zane Taylor has shared his story in a book called “Lesser Heroes”. He told stories about crawling on his belly as he tried to avoid machine gun fire, or digging a hole to hide in to avoid the shrapnel flying all around him. He left his home and family to watch his buddies die around him. Freedom is not free, it is a precious gift granted by others who paid a dear price for it. May we all remember those who gave it to us this 4th of July weekend!
