Here in the states we are celebrating Independence Day, July.04, in some areas they’re are fireworks, but we aren’t really supposed to have them here because we have a lot of dried grass and are in a high fire zone, just a couple of years ago they’re was the Butte Fire about 45 mins from us, and before that the Rim Fire, which left many displaced.
The song is obviously not mine, but Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA
And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm freeAnd I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me
I am the proud, daughter, niece, Granddaughter of those who served so I am very much aware that Freedom is not free
Of course I did not write the lyrics below, The Star Spangled Banner Was written by Francis Scott Key
O say can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
And the rocket's red glare, the bomb bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
Francis Scott Key
As we celebrate, may we remember those who fought to give us that freedom, and remember please keep it safe and sane!
