Today is… “Flag Day” – – are you flying your AMERICAN FLAG – – with all the gusto and honor that it deserves?
I can still remember that during the WWII days – – there were Parades and American Flags flying so often – – of course there was no “TV” distraction… all Americans had more important things to do working and saving all that they could – – so that our service men overseas – – would be able to have that which they needed – – to do everything needed – – even if it cost them their very young LIFE… to protect AMERICA – – to keep all of us Americans FREE!
The music by ” George M. Cohen”
When you listen to this music about the “LAND that YOU LOVE” – – you get “Goose Bumps” – – and just watching our beautiful American FLAG Flying – – just the knowing of all those young men and women – – that went to WAR for us – – and so many never came HOME – – they gave their all – – and for us not to show respect – – as some do – – as seen on “TV” – – there should be a penalty of disgrace hung around their necks – – as there is no better Country than America – – since the proof is – – some many people seek AMERICA for their FREEDOM – – even if it kills them – – just trying to do so illegally.
When I was a young girl, my brothers and I, were always singing the songs of America and for America, especially of each service branch. When we were on a bus or a streetcar, my youngest brother, TOMMY – the Show Man, of the FAMILY would march up and down the aisle singing , and had everyone join in. Everyone in the mid 1940’s was PRAYING and Singing those songs that UNITED AMERICA – – across the whole NATION – – and we were all PROUD to be AMERICANS!
Everybody – Fly the Flag! – and sing – America! And never forget to ask our Almighty YAHWEH to Bless AMERICA – – now and for always! D.V.
