The Price for Freedom-Video Six

“The price for this freedom has been high …”

Our sixth video in the series was first aired during this year’s Super Bowl, and features Johnny Cash’s “Ragged Old Flag,” with an entirely new video background story, shot just for this Super Bowl 51 Pre-Game feature.

Interestingly, the game featured a team called “The Patriots.”

Once again, Fox Sports should be commended for providing a Patriotic feature before kick-off. We’ve written much about how often we would hear our National Anthem … if we didn’t watch sports. For the last several years, when it was “their turn” to broadcast the game, Fox Sports has paid honor to our Country,
and it’s Veterans, by providing such a feature as this.

We’ve just returned from Georgia, where Daddy was laid to rest, beside my Mother, and my Sister.

Just a few days ago … I was there as the Honor Guard placed the United States Flag on Daddy’s casket. I witnessed, in somber silence, as I stood, just a few feet away, as the 21-Gun Salute echoed through the North Georgia hills … So, too, I stood a few feet away as the Bugler played “Taps,” my memories fading into the trees with those mournful notes …
I was there when two members of the Guard reverently removed the United States Flag, folded it ever so carefully … so thoughtfully … so respectfully … and then, bowing down … the Captain of the Honor Guard gently placed the folded Flag into my oldest’s Sister’s hands, and then … I leaned in closely in order to hear the
spoken words … It was a deeply personal moment, and the words were spoken softly, personally, as he looked directly into my Sister’s tears:

“This flag is presented on behalf of a grateful nation as a token of appreciation for your loved one’s honorable and faithful service.”

I’ve never been so proud of “That Ragged Old Flag.”

The Price for Freedom-Video Five

“Remembering our fallen heroes, their family and friends, who bear the burdens of  of great sorrow and pain.”

I discovered some of the videos in this series while I was researching for a “Memorial Day” video to share, so this is why the Memorial Day theme is prominent in some of  them.

Our original title for the series was “Memorial Day … Every Day.”

Our fifth video in the series features more images, some of them featured before, and some seen for the first time here. In either case, the images are to continue to remind us all that …

Here’s a link to Sarah’s official website:

I just can’t find the words to write, to go with these images … because … there are just no words that can …

Images to remind us all that …

“The Price for Freedom”-Video Two

“The price that our freedom demanded, didn’t allow you to come back.”

Our second video features Amazing Grace on bagpipes, the playing of Taps, and a 21-Gun Salute … and the images … the images so hard to imagine …

“… When someone is remembered … they continue to live on in the hearts of those they made impressions upon.”

I promise you that many of these images, many of which I saw here for the first time, I can’t get out of my mind … nor can I forget … nor do I want to forget.

“i am n” Video Series: Part Six – Sacrifice

“They could have kept their future, their homes, all their possessions, but they chose to sacrifice them, instead of denying Christ.”

We conclude this video series, produced by The Voice of the Martyrs, from their “i am n” campaign. This video features “sacrifice.”

“Sacrifice” is defined as “surrender of something for the sake of something else; the act of giving up something that you want to keep especially in order to get or do something else or to help someone; something given up or lost; an act of offering to a deity something precious.”

Image if you lived, everyday, with the danger of losing everything you have-including your life, and the lives of your loved ones-just by making the decision to convert to Christianity … or if “word got out” that you were a follower of Jesus …

“We left our homes, having nothing, and we lost everything, but we did not lose our faith in Christ Jesus.”

“If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.”

“i am n” Video Series: Part Five – Perseverance

“And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise”
Hebrews 6:15

We continue this video series, produced by The Voice of the Martyrs from their “i am n” campaign. This video features “perseverance.”

“Perseverance” is defined as “continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition; the quality that allows someone to continue trying to do something even though it is difficult; “

Image if you lived, everyday, with the danger of losing everything you have-including your life, and the lives of your loved ones-just by making the decision to convert to Christianity … or if “word got out” that you were a follower of Jesus …
“What the Lord has allowed them to do, is to persevere, one more day, even one more hour … it’s not something we can do on our own … “
