"Don't Burn Our Flag"

The year was 1976. It was our country's bicentennial - we had been a free nation for exactly 200 years. It was April 25 and our baseball season was in full swing. That day, one of the many games going on was between the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles Dodgers playing at Dodger Stadium. Playing center field for the Cubs was lefty Rick Monday. According to Rick, this is what happened in the fourth inning. He says, “I was in center field. I don't know if I heard the crowd first or saw the guys first, but two guys ran on the field.” He said, “When people run on the field, you don’t know what’s going to happen. Is it because they had too much to drink? Are they trying to win a bet?” They just don’t know.

"Let Us Never Stop Cheering!"

A few weeks ago I traveled back to Texas for a wedding. The bride was a long time friend's daughter, and the groom was a fine young man who had just graduated that week before from the West Point Academy. He had as two of his groomsmen two other West Point cadets who had also just graduated. They were now all 2nd Lieutenants in the Army. The night before the wedding, as that blistering hot Texas sun was finally starting to set, we sat outside enjoying a delicious barbecue dinner and some good conversation.

Remember the Price

By Jerry Stewart Since those first shots of freedom were fired by just a handful of brave Americans in 1776, almost 2 ½ million soldiers have died or been wounded in war. That’s an astounding figure. So many willing to give so much. But, think about this. In the last 100 years, and during our two world wars, our American soldiers haven’t fought just for our safety and freedom, but for the liberation of those people unable to liberate themselves. Brave American soldiers have fought all around the world and suffered and died for the cause of others.

If We Truly Want God’s Blessing For our Nation, Just What Does He Expect From Us In Return?

By Jerry Stewart On December 19, 1776, Thomas Paine wrote these famous words, "These
are the times that try men’s souls." The new American was in a terrible conflict. It seemed clear that America
would not, could not, prevail. The task, the battle, was just too much. But it
was a battle worth fighting. Paine went on to say:

Is America Finished?

By Jerry Stewart Listen It’s been a few years now since my wife, Kelly, and I had the great opportunity to travel through a good part of our great country, America. By the time we had finished we had traveled over 5,200 miles and through 11 states. We saw the spacious skies of Texas, the beautiful fields of Nebraska. We saw streams of every size, rocks of every color, the flatlands of Kansas and Oklahoma and the majestic mountains of Colorado. And all this just confirmed what I already knew.

George Washington - A Truly Great Man...but Why?

By Jerry Stewart
Listen In a recent poll people across America voted for whom they believe to be the greatest presidents in our nation's history, and there were two that stood out above all the others. One of these was Abraham Lincoln. And the other was our first president, George Washington. Now, its been said that George Washington actually had a set of false teeth made of wood. But that doesn't appear to be true. And the story that as a small boy he chopped down that cherry tree and when asked by his father he said, "I cannot tell a lie, yes I chopped down the tree?" That story doesn't appear to be true either. But it’s easy to see why that story was believed to be the truth, because George Washington was a man of the highest character and integrity. Even when he was a young boy he wrote his own, what he called, "Rules of civility and decent behavior." Listen to a few.

God Fought Our Battle

By Jerry Stewart
Listen Have you ever wondered where some of the sayings we have today...where they came from? Interestingly enough, our founding fathers not only gave us our freedom...they've given us some sayings that we still use...even today. For example, when we're speaking about someone who has a high and important status or position we call that person a "Big wig." Why is that? Well, in the early days of our colonies, men of importance actually wore special wigs. And, many times the man who wanted to be recognized as an especially important person would wear a bigger than average wig. So, today when we talk about an important person we may just call him a "Bigwig."

Caesar Rodney

By Jerry Stewart
Listen If you're like most of us in America today, you've been collecting the new statehood quarters which are being issued, one for each of our states. And each quarter has a different inscription on it designed by the people of that state. For example, the Virginia State quarter is a picture of the ships which carried the first settlers to Jamestown in 1607.

Let Freedom Ring

By Jerry Stewart
Listen When we think of the Declaration of Independence most of us don't realize that in 1776 America was a country possessed and controlled by England, who was at that time the most powerful military nation in the world. But the colonists were being heavily taxed and they had no say in the affairs of their government. They had no vote, they had no representation. This is where the saying, "No taxation without representation" came from. The colonists were angry and frustrated that they had to pay excessive taxes to a government which allowed them no say in the activities of of that government.

Are We Making Them Proud?

By Jerry Stewart
Listen I wonder what our founding fathers would say if they could walk our streets today. Oh, I'm sure they would be extremely impressed with our growth and technology… It’s very impressive. But just how impressed would they be when they discovered that we have systematically taken all the things they built America on and have driven them right into the ground.
