I CELEBRATE OUR INDEPENDENCE...

BECAUSE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE.

I am proud of this country because...



"O, thus be it ever when freeman shall stand,
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with the victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause, it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust"
And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!"

Last verse of Star-Spangled Banner
by
Francis Scott Key
September 1814


"Rally round the flag, boys!
Rally one again;
There are traitors in the camp boys,
And pirates on the Main:
There are rebels in the front boys,
A foes across the sea,
Who hate the proud republican
And scoff at you and me.

Rally round the Flag, boys!
Rally in your might;
Let the nations see how freemen
Can battle for the right;
Make the throbbing mountains echo
With the thunder of your tread;
With music sweet of martial feet
Salute our gallant dead.

Rally round the flag, boys;
Rally with cheer;
For all you love and cherish most,
For all that you hold dear,
Defend the brave old banner,
Unsullied from the earth
Within its folds enshrined it holds
All that this life is worth.

The rally round the Flag, boys;
Rally, rally still!
Rally from the valley,
And rally from the hill;
Rally from the ship, boys,
And rally from the plow;
Now or never is the word--
Never! failing now."



Raising the flag on Iwo Jima
February 23, 1945




"Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon.
July 1969 A.D.
We came in peace for all mankind."



 
We will NEVER forget.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!

  2. Freedom really is never free. We've lost so many people in our fight for our country/other countries. I'm sure families of the fallen can attest to that simple truth.
