I still get chills every time I hear the Star Spangled Banner and see our flag waving proudly in the breeze. I admit I am guilty of sometimes taking the freedoms I enjoy living in this country for granted. I am reminded in those times when I hear the National Anthem, though, and am often moved to tears.
I love the country in which I live. I am thankful more than words can express for all those who have fought to secure my freedom of speech, to worship, and to lay my head down at night knowing that I and my family are safe. It truly is “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.”
God Bless America!
