Let Freedom Ring!

Since today is the 4th of July, I want to tell you that I love the USA! We are so blessed to live in this country and I am so grateful! For every man and woman who has sacrificed so this country can be free, I am grateful! Whether it was soldiers who fought in war to keep our country free, or someone like Susan B. Anthony who helped get women the right to vote, or the Freedom Riders who stood up for human rights, or the founding fathers of our country who wrote the Declaration of Independence, I am GRATEFUL! For every person who has gone before me to pave the way for the life we now enjoy, I am grateful. God Bless America!

The Star Spangled Banner Lyrics
By Francis Scott Key 1814
Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
