Happy Birthday, America!

Here are some sights that we took in this evening as John and I waited to see the fireworks in Kirby Park. The music was divine. There's nothing like a good dose of patriotic music on this 4th of July.

This is something to think about as we enjoy our freedom in this great country. 

God bless those who have lost their lives fighting for our country.

I couldn't resist this T-shirt that one of the vendors was selling.

You're a Grand Old Flag

by George M. Cohan
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.

Happy birthday, America!
