"I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free. "

Can't you just hear Lee Greenwood singing?

I am proud to be an American. Our country is not perfect. Far from it. But it IS the greatest country on this planet. No other country recognizes the freedoms we so often take for granted. And few countries were founded on Judao-Christian principles.

I love the Fourth of July. I love the pomp and circumstance and the fireworks and the playing of our National Anthem. I love the whole process of what it means to be patriotic. And I really love it when someone else's expression of patriotism sends chills down my spine.

Like this:

If you are grateful for the blessing and privilege of living in the most amazing country on earth, take the time to find a veteran who fought for her freedom and personally thank him or her. Then pause and thank our great God for all that we enjoy.

Happy Fourth, ya'll.
