Happy Birthday America
I love to watch the Capitol Fourth from my hometown of D.C. with all the schmalzy patriotic music and fireworks. One year Ray Charles sang America the Beautiful; that was my favorite. This year though the temperatures were hotter than even here in Louisiana it was one of the most enthusiastically attended shows.
A what if question for you - where would we be now if we'd lost to the British? The realm would have probably sold us off to the French.
Happy Birthday to US!
May we grow in unity as our forefathers intended and learn in our souls that we are truly created equal, humbly accepting a position beside our fellow man, not above them.
