Independence Day 2016

"...proclaim liberty throughout all the land
 unto all the inhabitants thereof..."
Leviticus 25:10

I’m thankful for America:
The way of life we’ve known
And all the precious freedoms 
we can call our very own.

I’m thankful that we have a voice
 that we are free to use
And pray to God for wisdom
 in the leaders whom we choose. 
 I’m thankful for those patriots
 who loved honor more than fame,
Who instigated laws which
 have preserved America’s name.
May it  be always  possible—
Down through the years—
that we through conscientious effort keep
This land safe and free.
   - Ethel D. Posegate

Happy Birthday

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.
-George M. Cohan 

God Bless America !
