Freedom Friday - Plymouth MA National Monument To The Forefathers

When we have taken gratitude and humility before God out of all the schools and off all the coins, what will happen to the monuments like this one in Plymouth, MA? The "National Monument To The Forefathers" is located on a hilltop on a quiet side street in Plimouth.

The inscriptions are chiseled in stone and include the list of Mayflower passengers, a quote from Governor William Bradford recognizing God, and a statement of gratitude that reads, "Erected by a grateful people in remembrance of their labor, sacrifice and sufferings for the cause of civil and religious liberty."

The quote from Governor Bradford reads, "Thus out of small beginnings greater things have been produced by his hand that made all things of nothing and gives being to all things that are. And as one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled hath shone unto many, yea in some sort to our whole nation: Let the glorious name of Jehovah have all the praise."

My thoughts after all this time, God is still God. Thanks to those who so long ago risked everything to arrive here with the faith and vision and hope that I am a beneficiary of!

Without our forefathers and their actions, we wouldn't have the life we have today. Thanks for the reminder and the beautiful pictures!

In some parts of the country, Thanksgiving has more meaning than is politically correct to talk about. Plymouth is the heart of Thanksgiving.

Heath - Some would like to take this down, just because it mentions god. We know who they are, and we need to get those people out of office. Great post.

Did you know a movie is coming out about this? Monument by Kurt Camerson. Can't wait, was googling for more information and this post came up.

Thank you Heath for posting this information.  I, too, have NEVER heard of this National Monument to Our Forefathers.  What a tremendous testimony to the goodness, greatness, faithfulness and mercy of God! 

America has an undeniable legacy . . . etched in stone.  The blessings still flow to many who are unaware of the sacrifice, courage and commitment that these Pilgrim men and women displayed!
