Happy 4th of July!

American Angel by Catherine Lane

Home of the Brave

Through the feel of war they brave this day
How proud they stand, their unselfish way 

Our soldiers bear what we cannot see
They assure our right to live life free 

Each trained will face an unknown fate
Our support they need, don’t hesitate 

Just imagine how this land would be
Without their courage - catastrophe 

All the liberties we have grown to know
Would not exist, this life would go 

Find a thankfulness within your mind
Speak gratitude for our bravest kind 

Have the willingness to show you care
For fallen heroes, hold back no tear 

Reach out to God with his guiding light
For our troops do pray, both day and night 

America raise your flags to wave
For we truly are 'home of the brave'
