Fourth of July!
I hope you all have a lovely fourth, with lots of fireworks, festivity, and remembrance of those who still give their lives to keep our country free. We're going to have a barbecue, and possibly dye some drinks red, white, and blue. Nothing like being patriotic AND festive, right?
God bless, and have a blessed, and wonderful, Fourth of July.
Red for hardiness and valour, duty done with greatest honour,
White for clean, no stain to start: pure and innocent of heart.
Blue that to justice we'll adhere: vigilant to persevere.
On the field are fifty stars, flanked by thirteen shining bars.
Fifty stars for fifty states, bound by what the flag relates.
Flanking them, in red and white, thirteen stripes recall the fight.
Freedom won, declared today. May God bless the U.S.A.!
