I love this country, too! In spite of all her problems, America is STILL the BEST and GREATEST country on this planet. And quite possibly, the greatest country and civilization that has EVER existed on this planet.
Like you, I have a deep respect for the men and women who bravely and selflessly serve in our Armed Forces - past and present. While I may not agree with the policies of our government, and the decisions that lead to war, I ALWAYS support our Troops 100%.
I'm reminded of a song that Billy Ray Cyrus did a few years ago. It is very fitting now at this time. I will post the words below:
1st Verse: I knew a man called him Sandy Kane Few folks even knew his name But a hero was he Left a boy, came back a man Still many just don't understand About the reasons we are free
I can't forget the look in his eyes Or the tears he cries As he said these words to me
Chorus: All gave some and some gave all And some stood through for The Red, White And Blue And some had to fall And if you ever think of me Think of all your liberties and recall Some gave all
2nd Verse: Now Sandy Kane is no longer here But his words are oh so clear As they echo through out our land For all his friends who gave us all Who stood the ground and took the fall To help their fellow man
Love your country and live with pride And don't forget those who died... America, can't you see
Chorus: All gave some and some gave all And some stood through for The Red, White and Blue And some had to fall And if you ever think of me Think of all your liberties and recall Some gave all
Tag: And if you ever think of me Think of all your liberties and recall, yes recall Some gave all
It's great to know there are those who respect our country. Most may not know on June 14th was Flag Day. My husband's birthday too so I've learned to observe this fully. Our country also celebrated 400 years on April 29th too in Virginia. How blessed to be citizens of this great land, Amen, God has blessed and will bless us even more. Land of the free.
