Happy Independence Day

Recommended Posts

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out of of their foul footsteps' pollution
No refuge could save the hireling and slave'
From the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory 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

To my friends and all the hard working people of all the colors and religions South of the border:
- Happy 4th of July!
To the rioters out there:
- you don't deserve it.

That from a man who knows what Eastern Europe was and is.

A man who threw everything to the wind and took a chance and now serves the citizens of a new home.

Thanks for the reality check, Nestor.
