How true!
 -- Georgia Peach, Savannah     
    true, i enjoy this one alot.
     -- Lynnette, Sugarland TX     
    The first half is both too glib and too subject to interpretation (what is "life" and what is "a gift", who is the "giver", etc). The second half is a basic truth.
     -- Anonymous, Reston, VA US     
    Reston is right. Life can be hell from the beginning in millions of cases.
     -- Dick, Fort Worth     
    Indeed life is a gift -- and a mystery! From wherever it has originated, it is not something man has created. I do not take it for granted.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Freedom is a responsibility is alot like saying education is lost on the young. If Americans do not wake up to the fact that their freedom is not a guarantee but is at increasing risk then perhaps it should be taken from them so they can experience its value through absense.
     -- EGL, LA     
    Reston, what is the meaning of "is"?
     -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
    Life is indeed a gift, without which nothing is possible. Freedom exists only where it is taken, allowed and protected.
     -- Anonymous, San Jose,Ca     
    It does seem, many speak of the Constitution, but neglect to mention our Declaration of Independence. Reston speaks as one who has no children ? therefore he has no respect for the gift of life. The gifts and calling of God are without repentance. God concludes all at fault, that he might have mercy upon all. Liberty and justice for all ? The Sons and Daughters, born of Liberty, bear the responsibility of presenting themselves a living sacrifice to God. The outworking of Natural law is the manifestation of the Spirit of life in and at Liberty, the active agent of God. Strait is the gate and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The natural law of Liberty is a lamp and the law is light; reproofs of instruction are the way of life. When thou goest, it shall lead thee, when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee, and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. Great Quote, Thank you Mr. Schaub.
