As we celebrate America's Independence Day let's remember to be grateful to the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces; to those who protect and serve all over the world, and to all those who served when duty called. Since the birth of our nation in 1776 thousands have given the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom we are blessed with today.
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
Thru 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.
--music & lyrics by Irving Berlin.
