  1. Freedom Rings

I was crossing the upper Delaware River last winter when the jagged ice was rushing down stream and treacherous. I thought about the sheer willpower of the starving and frozen soldiers who crossed the Delaware on Christmas night 1776 with George Washington. As with all wars, even the victors lose something in the end. -Heidi


Black water in the Delaware. Tangled ice and frigid air. Starving men row hard and strong. On the prayers of Washington. Freedom Rings Oh. Cannon balls and shattered glass. Patriots surprise attack. Battle cries on Christmas night. Victory whets appetites. Freedom Rings Oh. Wiping blood off the floor. Wash away the signs of war. Guns that brought them to terms. Sons and men who won’t return. Freedom Rings Freedom Rings Independence Independence, Day Freedom Rings
