Happy Fourth of July
As I was hanging the flag today I thought of some of the many reasons why I do......
I fly it for my dad and my uncle who served in World War II.
I fly it for my brother who served in the Vietnam War
... For the people who have paid the ultimate price in fighting to provide freedom for this beloved land
... For our forefathers who worked to craft a perfect government and those who have carried out the laws preserving
our liberty and freedom
...For the countless people who nobody has heard of but without them this country would not work.
the mechanics, waitresses, refrigerator repairmen, nurses, teachers, truck drivers, clerks and people who mark merchandise
...For my grandparents who always made the Fourth of July a BIG DEAL - cap guns, watermelons,
potato salad and strawberry shortcake
...For the people who knew something was wrong and fixed it
...For the men and women in uniform who still fight and die for this country, for K.C. and Grace who are in the military
...Just because Old Glory is so beautiful
God bless America Diane
