Message From the Fourth

Glorious celebration
Glorious celebration
Land of the free
Land of the free
together we weather the storms of our lives
together we weather the storms of our lives
Fair skies ahead
Fair skies ahead
Rosy sun ups await us all.
Rosy sun ups await us all.
We shall brave this life together forever.
We shall brave this life together forever.
The human spirit soars.
The human spirit soars.


Firecrackers pop and light up the sky, a gift from the Chinese, so long ago,

The Lady stands tall in the harbor. a gift from the French, and still, to glow.

All came from Europe and Asia, about the world, as from India's balmy shore,

they created a nation, and in unity, walked through the country's open door.


In unity there is such a strength, a powerful force, and beyond any to compare,

to be no destruction, or falling down, as a country's people show that they care.

No factions within, nor those from without, can deter, never taking a full control,

in the land of freedom. where its people are the source, the human spirit to extol.


The Fourth of July is our message to the world, and our flag of freedom, to unfurl,

amid the swarming of life, and the stars in the night, in our galaxy, as we all do swirl.

It's a human need for us all to succeed, as the United States, then serves to show,

putting down the tyranny of dictatorships, while giving this world the seeds to grow.


A day for the world to celebrate, in the name of freedom, and a love we all may share,

showing then, the wonderful life, to be aspired, and for a future, that we shall so spare.

Fireworks light up evening skies, revealing a testament, to be held in our hearts, so dear,

we shall walk in unison, to our futures, so bright, putting aside all our worry and fear.

I certainly hope out country remains "the land of the free". With what's been going on lately in our government, I sometimes wonder.

Regardless, I'm proud to be an American and love our country and the principles on which it was founded.

God Bless America!

We may each have much to be thankful for. In this country many do not realize what ir is like to live elsewhere in the world and what they may do without. Here, we often take for granted what others may have little hope in gaining. Yes, we do have hangups here and problems, yet we have much more than most. Thanks for your support. whonu
