Celebrate our freedom symbolized by this wonderful banner.
...and keep this in mind,that Winston Churchill, in the U.K. House of Commons, November 11, 1947, had this to say:
Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.…Churchill clearly did not originate this famous remark about democracy, but it is certainly true.
It is good to remember that about our form of government amidst this world of chaos. Remind your kids, too, that their freedom depends on it.
