Fourth of July
. . . . . . O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution.
~John F. Kennedy
I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives.
I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
May I never wake up from the American dream.
is the greatest blessing our country has to offer.
With deep humility, I thank all who have contributed it.
Happy Fourth of July
From the Freeman House
I love red, white and blue bunting.
Well, I actually love anything red, white and blue,
but I wanted to do something special this July Fourth
so I enlisted the help of my sewing machine and Walmart's $1/yard fabrics.
God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
-- Irving Berlin
