What Being American Means To Me

I love being American. Especially here in Montana. I have thought a lot on Freedoms, Soliders and patriots who have gone before us. Our founding Fathers for example. I then think of my good friend Mark. He is now serving in the Army of this great Nation. I hope that this post is read by him as well as all of those who are fighting  for the cause of Freedom.
There was a solemn moment in every ones heart of what it means to them to be a part of this Land of Liberty. The Song Proud to be an American by Lee Greenword. Speaks for us in those words...
If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.
I’d thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘ Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can’t take that away.
And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘ Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.
