proud to be an American…

” ‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom, and they can’t take that away.”

I love my country. And on this day, I don’t have the words. So many things that could be said… and I’ve got nothing. No matter what our present leadership tries to tell you, remember that our country was founded by men who believed in God, and God’s laws. They believed in freedom of worship, freedom of speech, and the freedom to bear arms, among many others. Our Founding Fathers were willing to give their lives for what they believed in, and if we’d lost the American Revolution, the signers of the Declaration of Independence would’ve been hung for treason.

Set off some fireworks for me. Use a sparkler to write “USA” in the air. Face Old Glory, sing the national anthem, and hold your hand over your heart. Wear red, white, and blue, and eat lots of hot dogs and hamburgers. And thank your Heavenly Father for allowing you to live in the greatest country in the world. Because if you are a legal citizen of the United States of America, then short of heaven, there is no greater.
