Let Freedom Ring!

Today is my favorite (except Christmas, of course) holiday of the year. We celebrate our nation's birthday and remember the heroes who literally put their lives on the line so that we might enjoy this grand experiment called America. Two-hundred and thirty years later, the United States is still the best country in the world -- warts and all.

I know of no other way to express my love for this day and for this country, except to say it like this:

Oh, beautiful, for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountains majesty
Above the fruited plain

America, America
God shed His grace on Thee
And crown Thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
