Happy Independence Day

Image of little boy and girl here

Through the feel of war they brave this day
How proud they stand, their unselfish way

Our soldiers bear what we cannot see
They assure our right to live life free

Each trained will face an unknown fate
Our support they need, donít hesitate

Just imagine how this land would be
Without their courage - catastrophe

All the liberties we have grown to know
Would not exist, this life would go

Find a thankfulness within your mind
Speak gratitude for our bravest kind

Have the willingness to show you care
For fallen heroes, hold back no tear

Reach out to God with his guiding light
For our troops do pray, both day and night

America raise your flags to wave
For we truly are 'home of the brave'

Hope you have a safe
but Happy 4th!

small animated USA flag here

If you do not hear music..go to bottom of page and turn music on.
Altho...some devices will not support the music file

"The Star-Spangled Banner"
This is the national anthem of the United States of America.
The lyrics come from "Defence of Fort McHenry", a poem written in 1814
by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key,
after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British Royal Navy ships
in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Fort McHenry in the War of 1812.
