Postcard from a grateful heart
the last full measure of devotion…
Abraham Lincoln’s words still ring true. As a fifth grader at Commonwealth Elementary School in Los Angeles over half a century ago, I, along with my classmates, not only said the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag each morning, but with hand over heart also recited the Gettysburg Address, the Preamble to the Constitution and the second sentence of the Declaration of Independence.
We were taught the ideals that make the United States of America a great nation under God, and taught to be grateful to those who have given their lives and those who have risked their lives in service to those ideals.
