I think Lowell would be singing a different song had he been alive today.

    It's not the steps of Freedom that falter, they are immutable, it's us that fail to ascend... RBE

    Freedom absolutely requires 'walking the talk.' We've come a long way baby, but we ain't there yet...
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Liberty and freedom move forward in hope. Php 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your request be made known to God. KJB. The rock upon which the republic rest !
     -- WMITN13, USA     
    Amen WMITN13, the Finger of that Amighty Hand was at work in the endeavors of our forefathers and they kept that in mind throughout their lives. As a result, the nation they formed is still alive today. If this generation continues its downward spiral away from the will of the Father, we will lose the foundation in which this country was formed. And no structure can stand without a strong foundation.
     -- Publius, USA
