The Rising

Again, I say: I’m delighted to be an American. Knock us down, and with new fire in our eyes, we scramble upright. Snatch our liberties, and with single vision we rise, undamaged freedom dangling from our hands. Try intimidation, and the eagle within us screams and soars in majestic power and final triumph. Demolish our buildings, and from the rubble will rise the finer, the taller, most magnificent and most glorious. Attempt the annihilation of our faith, and with yet firmer resolve, we elevate God’s Word, and with passion we humble ourselves and seek His face.

They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)
