Happy 4th everyone!! Remember that 200+ years ago, our forefathers created a commonwealth and separated from Britan.  The U.S has one of the longest standing constitutions.  We are all free and have rights.  IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT? Sorry to viewers in England.  :-)  But remember the people who are enslaved, who have no government, who are gripped in civil war.  Be thankful for this great country.  Remember to pray for our wonderful country, and for the people in it.  Happy 4th!!!

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation.
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust;”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

That verse is rarely sung, but it is my second favorite.
