You're a grand old flag, You're a high flying flag And forever in peace may you wave. You're the emblem of The land I love. The home of the free and the brave. Ev'ry heart beats true 'neath the Red, White and Blue, Where there's never a boast or brag. Should auld acquaintance be forgot, Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
It is through many years of fierce battle and struggle, that we enjoy the freedom we have today. Stop this holiday and thank the men and women who fought for this country and our way of life. As Patrick Henry said, "Give me Liberty or Give me Death". That famous quote still stands true today. On the 4th, say a silent prayer for our armed services. Pray for their families to be strong until their safe return. Use this day to celebrate our nation. Hope you and your family have a safe and happy 4th of July.
