"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty." - John F. Kennedy
Carved onto the sides of the Washington monument are several prayers written to our first president. Close to the top is the prayer offered by the City of Baltimore. The prayer is in the form of a blessing:
"May heaven to this union continue its beneficence.
May brotherly affection with union be perpetual.
May the free constitution which is the work of our ancestors
be sacredly maintained and its administration be stamped with wisdom and virtue.
From our Cottage By The Sea, right back at ya, God bless you!
And God Bless America.
"Laus Deo" (Praise the Lord.)
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
