that day, April 19, 1775, our Patriot Fathers
engaged the mightiest fighting force of the time,
the British Empire.
The War for American Independence had begun.
Emerson’s dedicatory poem, Concord Hymn,
immortalized the moment with his phrase,
“the shot heard round the world.”
Today, the battle for liberty continues,
but with ballots, not bullets.
America continues to depend
on her patriot minutemen sounding the cry
of protecting our God-given liberties.
We pray it may it never come to bullets again,
but that patriotic Americans would once again
be armed with the truth, and not afraid to use it.
