"Believest thou in the Lord Jesus Christ?"
The true affirmative is the passport to Heaven.
Believest thou in Liberty?
The unrecanting "Yes" is the master key to
the golden gate that opens to Liberty Heights -
The loftiest - and loveliest place in all Heaven.
Only the brave and true may enter here.
"He that findeth his life shall lose it;
He that loseth his life for my sake shall find it."
Nathan Hale and all his shining company have
gone forth in their glowing prime -
to take an option on the garden spot of Heaven.
Only the worthy may join them.
We honor our departed heroes on Memorial Day.
God - Author of Liberty - honors them through all eternity.
