My Country Tis of Thee


My country tis of thee, Sweet Land of Liberty, Of thee I sing:


Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrim's pride,




From every mountain side, Let freedom ring.


Let music swell the breeze, And ring from all the trees



 Sweet freedom's song: Let mortal tongues awake;



Let all that breathes partake; Let rocks their silence break, The sound prolong.



 Our fathers' God, to Thee, Author of liberty,



 To thee we sing: Long may our land be bright



With freedom's holy light; Protect us by Thy might, Great God our King!

  5. Such a wonderful patriotic tribute and gorgeous beach pics!!! How are you?!?!?!??!
    I've been following the weather back home nad know it's been HOT~!
    Can you believe when we were in Florence that it was in the 90s most of the time--up to 95????? Surreal!!!!
    You should definitely come back to Italy and visit us before we leave....so very sadly, we're having to leave early because they've moved up Tom's deployment to Afghanistan (for a year!). So, we're coming home in September.
    But, we're already planning ways to come back, so if you miss visiting us here this go around, there will be more! But, I'll be back home for at least a year and a half, maybe more.
    I have France questions for you, but will email soon!
    Hugs/blessings/can't wait to meet you in person,

  7. The Kenwood 22154656 is our pick for best 4 channel amp for door speakers. Why? Because not only does it have amazing sound, but also a compact design that lets you easily install it into smaller, tighter spaces.
