With our celebrations let us remember the true reason for our celebrations, at our family picnics and parades all across this great nation. It is because of the brave heroism of the men and women in our military, who have given their lives, with such great honor and integrity that we might continue to live freely here in America. True Patriotism begins in the hearts of every man, woman and child in America, and let us hold our heads proudly to say, "God Bless the United States of America". Long may her great flag wave, as a symbol of our faith, honor, charity, freedom, liberty and justice for all people!
"This Is My Song"
"This is my song, Oh God of all the nations,
A song of peace for lands afar and mine.
This is my home, the country where my heart is;
Here are my hopes, my dreams, my holy shrine;
But other hearts in other lands are beating,
With hopes and dreams as true and high as mine."
Text: Lloyed Stone, 1912-1993; Georgia Harkness, 1891-1974
Music Jean Sibelius, 1865-1957
God Bless Our Great Nation and God Bless You & Your Family Aways!
