American Independence [4 July]

Greetings to all American Centurions on the eve of the commemoration of the Declaration of Independence..
The words of that document continue to inspire a nation toward justice, freedom, and fraternity, as was always intended by our Creator.
I extend a special salute to those who stand in the breech to defend that freedom. 
"And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the fence, and stand in the breach before me for the land ..." Ezekiel 22:30 [DBY]
 A good day to read the Declaration.. see the link below:

Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve

"[Independence Day] ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward forever more."
[John Adams]

"Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another" [St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans 14:19]
