Wisdom for US on image:

“Our freedom in the United States of America depends on our goodness as individuals, as a people, and as a nation. Never take our freedom for granted.

Do goodness every day.

Goodness of government and of its leaders are critical for the happiness of its citizens.

Recognize the strong connection between godliness and doing goodness for all.

Beware of mixing both power and money in the same position.

Virtue is necessary for happiness.”
