Happy Fourth of July

July 04, 2020
By Diana Schmidt


“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” - Joshua 1:9

As we celebrate our nation’s founding this Fourth of July, please join me in taking a moment to reflect on how fortunate we are to live in the United States and remember the sacrifices that so many have made to protect and preserve our liberties. As President Ronald Reagan said, our nation must be preserved, protected, and passed on to each generation with great care. In the same way, at Hanford Christian School we are dedicated to love, teach, and serve our children for God’s glory so that they may leave our doors with a firm foundation as Christ followers, responsible citizens, and future leaders. 

Hanford Christian School is blessed to be surrounded by a wonderful military community and to call many military members a part of the HCS family. They, like our nation’s Founders, have mutually pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to defend our great country. We are so grateful for our HCS military service members and the families that support them!

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” - Ronald Reagan
