“God Bless America! Land that I love!”
Just a warning to anyone who reads this. Prepare yourself for sudden outbursts of song!
No, this is not a musical, and just a warning- I do not have a beautiful singing voice at all! So, close your ears if you don’t want to hear my grateful voice of celebration!
Tonight is a good night in America! Americans all over the country are dancing in the streets celebrating the good news! We’ve waited so long for this good news! Ten long years!
It is my hope and prayer that this will unite us once again. If only for “one moment in time!”
Usually I do not celebrate the death of someone. However, Osama Bin Laden-
“I bet it felt like the WHOLE WIDE WORLD WAS raining down on youuuu! Brought to you, courtesy of the RED, WHITE & BLUE!!!”
Ahhhhh, yes! Justice has indeed been served! That is, if the news we are hearing is correct! Yes, unfortunately, I have my doubts. As I’ve written about before, I don’t trust any of our politicians. I will not apologize for my skepticism- they’ve all brought it on themselves!
God forgive me if it is wrong, but I do hope that it is true. This man was nothing but pure evil incarnate. I will never forget “when the world stopped turning on that September day”.
My heart sings, yet at the same time weeps for the families and friends of those who lost their lives almost 10 years ago. Ten long years. Finally they have some semblance of justice.
“And I’m proud to be an American,
where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t 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.”
Tonight, I thank God Almighty for the blessings of living in America- Land of the Free, Home of the Brave. I dedicate this article to all of the military men and women throughout history who have given their life, their blood, their sweat and their tears so that I might be free! You always do your duty, no matter what it cost you. You and your families and friends make sacrifices. You count the cost and know what you are sacrificing. I pray that you do not die… but if you do, may God rest your soul. No, freedom don’t come free, and indeed, you all bear that cross with honor. Please know that you are greatly appreciated, forever loved and completely cherished. Though I have not personally served, I have many family members and friends who have fought beside you. Thank you, and God bless you all! Tonight, America dances in the streets to honor you! Please be extra careful out there! Just because Osama is <most likely> dead does not mean this war is over. In fact, in many ways it is just beginning! May God Almighty keep each of you safe in the shadow of His wings! (Psalm 91)
“And I will always do my duty no matter what the price
I’ve counted up the cost, I know the sacrifice
Oh and I don’t want to die for you, but if dyin’s asked of me
I’ll bear that cross with honor, cause freedom don’t come free.
I’m an American Soldier an American
Beside my brothers and my sisters, I will proudly take a stand
When liberty’s in jeopardy, I will always do what’s right
I’m out here on the front lines, sleep in peace tonight
American Soldier, I’m an American, Soldier.”
