Re: O'er the ramparts we watch'd

Dear John,

Thanks for bringing these facts to my attention, and to the attention of
all. However, I did not mean to imply that the founding fathers had our
pledge to the flag, though it must have sounded that way. I only meant that
this country was founded by individuals who believed in a God Almighty, and
that this country was a haven for religious freedom. I certainly feel that
if they could see the decline in the recognition of God they would feel
badly about the direction that our nation has taken. I still am very proud
to be in a nation where we have the freedoms which we have in America.

May God strengthen our nation.
