God Bless the USA

"I’d thank my lucky stars,to be livin' here today.

‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,

and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American,

where at least I know I’m free.

And I won't forget the men who died,

who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,

next to you and defend her still today.

‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,

God bless the USA. "
I love this song...I cry everytime I hear it. Happy 4th everyone!!

  1. I remember the first time I heard "God Bless The USA". I was six years old, and it was a mid-western dusky afternoon. It was at a rodeo, and before anything began, we all stood up with our hands over out hearts and listened to Lee Greenwood piped over the loudspeakers. I think it's the earliest memory I have of a song reaching down and touching my heart. It's a feeling I can't describe...but where the song abruptly pauses was definitely the key moment for me. I plan to write about it on our website: Thanks for your post!
