America The Beautiful
Oh beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountains majesties,
Above the fruited plain
America! America! God shed his grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
Happy July 4th! As we celebrate with picnics, barbeque's, and fireworks today, let us not forget the true reason for this day. Our forefathers wanted us to remember and celebrate our country's independence and the ending of what was then the "war to end all wars", The Revolutionary War. Now, with several more wars behind us and our troops spread across the globe protecting our country's interests with the war on terror, let us remember the troops, and their families as well.
Ronald Regan said it best with this quote; "We will always remember, We will always be proud, We will always be prepared, So we may always be free."
