Today would have been my Father's 74th Birthday. He was born on the 4th of July in 1937. He was a patriotic man, as am I. He served in the Naval Reserves. It is an honor to dedicate this day to him, and all of current military personnel, and the veterans who have served in the past. Now, on to our July 4th celebration.
I want to take this week to share some of our best musicians singing about our great country. I hope you enjoy these musical tributes. This will be a dedication of our freedoms, and those who have given of themselves for us to be living in the greatest country on Earth.
I was like millions of Americans that fateful day on September 11th, 2001. Angry, dejected, and wanting to payback the dirty rotten cowards who brought that horrific tragedy to our land. Then as we started to get on with our lives as President Bush thought we should, we were reminded of just how great we truly are.
Whitney Houston gave the performance of her life when she sang the National Anthem at the Super Bowl in 2002. Once again, I like millions of Americans, felt a pride, and a kinship with each other that no cowardly act could ever divide.
