Listen to History: Our Lives, Our Fortunes, Our Sacred Honor

“Sacred honor” isn’t a phrase we use much these days, but every American life is touched by the bounty of this, the Founders’ legacy. It means dedicated and devoted to God to uphold moral integrity, strength of character, and ethical principles for the betterment of all. It is freedom, tested by blood, and watered with tears.
