I believe God brought our great nation into being. Our Preamble and Constitution were surely approved, if not inspired, of God.

I’m proud to be an American as I recall the faith of our Fathers and the thousands upon thousands of American Mothers’ sons [and daughters] who [have served this country] and many who gave their lives to keep US and OTHERS free. Dear American [servicemen] are buried all over this world on behalf of freedom. I’m proud to be an American!

I believe a good Christian is a “flag-waving Christian”, one who has a red, white, and blue stripe painted down his back and is proud of it. He is one who gets a lump in his throat and a tear in the eye when Old Glory passes by.
