HAPPY JULY 4TH

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

MAY WE ALWAYS BE FREE

MAY WE ALWAYS WORSHIP
AS WE PLESE
WHEN WE PLEASE
AND WHERE WE PLEASE

MAY WE ALWAYS
HAVE THE RIGHT TO SUCCEED
WITHOUT INTERFERENCE OF
TYRANNY OR
TOTALITARIANISM
MAY WE ALWAYS
RESPECT OUR FLAG

MAY WE HONOR THOSE
WHO DIED OR SUFFERED
TO KEEP US FREE

Hi Gail. "God Bless America" was written by Irving Berlin who was originally from Russia. He loved America. It was dear to him. It was first introduced to us on an Armistice Day broadcast in 1938 sung by Kate Smith on her radio show. Interesting, huh?

Hi Linda,
I'm old enough to have listened to Kate Smith sing "God Bless America," and I loved it. I wish I could hear it now. Thanks for stopping by.
