Happy Independence Day! 🇺🇸 God Bless America!

Happy Independence Day!

The Declaration of Independence changed everything! It changed the world! No matter your politics, today is the day for Americans to celebrate and wave Old Glory🇺🇸! I still get choked up when we all stand and put our hands on our hearts and pledge the flag! 

I’m proud of that “Ragged Old Flag”! How about you? #Godblessamerica!

Stars and Stripes Forever!

Freedom’s natal day is here.
Fire the guns and shout for freedom,
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever,
Dearest flag in all the world.

   ~Florence A. Jones

 

Have a GREAT day! God Bless America!

Sunday Reflections…

Turn off the TV, lay down the smart phone, relax your mind for a little while… I’ve been reflecting on things lately. My life, family, country, God. I for one feel blessed! I am proud to be an American! I took this picture last night as we watched the sunset. Old Glory speaks volumes if you’ll listen…

I want to take a minute and say how thankful I am to be an American! No other country on the face of the earth affords us the rights and privileges that we have as Americans. Stand up! Speak your mind! Hold your ground! God Bless America! 🇺🇸

God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.
God bless America,
My home sweet home.


Peace,

9/11/2001… Never Forget! God Bless America 🇺🇸

A Heavy blow was struck against us all that day.

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

God Bless America! #neverforget

Its been 18 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 17 now and a senior in high school. Many in his class don’t know much of anything about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today. Tell them what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! #neverforget !

I still remember this like it was yesterday! My wife was pregnant at work when the towers were struck. Everyone was scared to death of what was next. So many died that day 😢 We can #neverforget

I’m going to hug my wife and my son a little harder today! We are going to talk and discuss what happened and why.

God Bless You All! & God Bless America! 🇺🇸

PS: Here’s a link to local coverage of 9/11 that morning by my old friend Bill Way. If you want a Live account of that day, listen to this… http://billwayshow.libsyn.com/the-91101-show#OoeJIyV0leTqC9Mf.01
