I am so grateful to be a citizen of the United States of America. And when I hear this song, I cry from sheer joy, love and happiness that I am here. I love this country with all my heart....and I will always sing....

God Bless America Lyrics
by Irving Berlin

Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,

close

Thank you for your post Pacita.  You are a true patriot and a wonderful example of what being an American is all about.  I'm proud to call you a fellow citizen.

Pacita:

When I hear that beautiful song, I think of Kate Smith and her exuberant rendition of the song.  So great.

Doug--- I get very emotional when I hear or write about this song. I truly am thankful to be an American citizen -- not by birth, but by choice

Evelyn -- It was a toss up between Kate Smith and Celine Dion's youtube video. I love them both.

Endre --- No, Endre....I salute YOU!

Have a great Memorial Day.  We have so much to be grateful for.  A lot of soldiers paid the ultimate price so we could be free.

Phil -- we should always remind people on why we have a Memorial Day holiday in the first place.

Rob -- we have a monumental debt to people who made it possible for us to enjoy life as we know it.

It is a wonderful country.

We sang 4 patriotic songs at church this morning. It is great to live in a conservative area.

Gosh...I hope celebrating Memorial Day is non-partisan. I do remember that after 9-11, Berkeley fire trucks were decorated with American flags, and then were told to take them down in case they offended some people,.

There are still many of us who will defend this country -- maybe not in the battlefield, but in our daily lives when we encounter naysayers and complainers who don't know how good we have it here.

We do live in a great country. Each day we must fight to keep it great and ward off the powers of the government. Great blog!
