Happy Fourth of July!

Ev'ry heart beats true 'neath the Red, White and Blue
~George M. Cohan

Patriotism is easy to understand in America -
it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country.
~Calvin Coolidge

We dare not forget that we are the heirs of that first revolution.
~John F. Kennedy

The American Revolution was a beginning, not a consummation.
~Woodrow Wilson

This nation will remain the land of the free only
so long as it is the home of the brave.
~Elmer Davis

God Bless America

While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free.
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer:

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

Happy holiday! I love the extra day on the weekend. I just read your post at the Lark Journals. It sounds like you've got some nice weekend plans. We're doing much the same, spending time with family. We have invited the neighbors over too so we'll have a crowd but we're looking forward to it. Let's hope the rain holds off!

"God Bless America" is one of my favorite patriotic songs and seeing the words, I just had to raise my voice and sing.
