God Bless America

Happy Independence Day!! Wow what an awesome day it is here in the U.S. of A! This is one of my favorite holidays, I am a bit of a patriot. Growing up I always loved learning about U.S. history. My dad was in Vietnam and I can remember sitting around the campfire, listening and being in awe of all his old stories about "Nam." Its amazing what so many people have sacrificed to keep this nation going strong, so many freedoms we have. I like the part of the Zac Brown Band song "Chicken Fried" that says;

I thank God for my life
And for the stars and stripes
May freedom forever fly
Let it ring

Salute the ones who died
The ones that give their lives
So we dont have to sacrifice
All the things we love

I love belting that part out when Im driving! ;) Have an amazing holiday and dont forget why we celebrate it! Im gonna go watch The Patriot with Mel Gibson. ;) If you havent seen it- get it!  Love you all!
