"Freedom in not Free"
by Debra and Dave Vanderlaan
... Driving the back roads of Oregon,
the discovery of a picturesque old barn
in a grassy pasture, caught our eye.
Once used to store hay
for the cattle,
now a beautiful old relic
of the past,
a vividly colorful mural painted
on it's side.
"Freedom is not Free" says it all.
Our national bird, the bald eagle,
decorates the American flag,
Old Glory, the Stars and Stripes,
on the broad side of this barn.
The trees surrounding the pastures
are in full autumn shades
and the clouds still have
the last color of sunrise
glowing in the distance...
Our country 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing!
God Bless America...
