Nathan Hale- "I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country."

Official Connecticut State Hero

http://www.statesymbolsusa.org/Conne...than-Hale.html

"O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife. Who more than self their country loved and freedom more than life! America! America! May God thy gold refine 'Til all success be nobleness and every gain divine!"
- (from "America the Beautiful" by Katherine Lee Bates and Samuel Ward; love the references to 1 Corinthians 3 and Philippians 3:8 in this verse.)

And I LOVE this thread idea.
And I LOVE America- and all countries- and God Who gave us our times and places to live in them (Acts 17:26).
