Sending you the very best wishes for this day, especially if you are in the U.S. and celebrating Independence Day. Today I am feeling grateful for all who have sacrificed for the safety and well-being of our country. I am thinking of families who are celebrating without their loved ones who are posted in far away and often dangerous places. I am thinking of The Colonel and The General both who have set such a great example in their service and commitment to our country.
I am thinking about ancestors who made tremendous sacrifices to seek a better life for their families here in the United States. I am also thinking of my own beloved family who I will get to celebrate this day with. This year I will wave the flag a little more vigorously and pray a little harder for the protection and safety of those who stand in harms way. I will be more grateful that I can do all these things in freedom and pray that our freedoms continue to be protected and preserved. Happy Birthday America. May God bless and preserve you.
I love this song, although it cracks me up that one of the most beautiful versions of this song is sung by a Canadian. Thanks Celine. Maybe Lee Greenwood should return the favor and do a really awesome version of Oh Canada. Haahaa.
