Today, it's the word united. I think of that object lesson where you tell someone to break a twig and they do, easily. But when you put a bunch of twigs together, it's hard. United, we are strong. United, we can do anything, help anyone, protect everyone. Not only as a country, but as families, as friends, as sports teams, as churches.
We are the United States of America. I LOVE my country. I cry when I see the flag raised on the 4th of July. I would fight for my country if called to do so. I've lived out of the states. I know that as an American, what I have is priceless. The gift of freedom is a blessing so many take for granted, or don't understand, or don't realize they even have. Hopefully, we as a nation never have to experience the opposite.
We may have different opinions, different political beliefs, and different ideas, but we can work together. We have to . . . or we'll fall.
- God bless America
- Land that I love.
- Stand beside her, and guide her
- Through 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
