[Burial site of Chuck Colson, Founder of Breakpoint Ministry]
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears
God shed His grace on thee,
Till nobler men keep once again
Thy whiter jubilee.
[Katherine Lee Bates, America the Beautiful, last stanza of original poem, 1893]
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
