America

America

The flag gently waving in the breeze

The uniform crisp and neat

BBQ's aromas so delightful

Parades on main streets from sea to shining sea

Fireworks booming in the night take me to thoughts of

the gunfire, the raging war, the death on the battlefield

Sadness, burials, honor guards, 21 gun salutes.

Freedom, honor, bravery, integrity, love of God and country

These are just a few of the things I think of on Independence Day
