  • Happy 4th of July!

    On this 4th of July, I thought I’d share the chorus of two of my favorite patriotic songs. The first is from Toby Keith’s “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”:

    Hey Uncle Sam put your name at the top of his list
    And the Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist
    And the eagle will fly
    And there’s gonna be Hell
    When you hear Mother Freedom start ringing her bell
    It’s gonna feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you . . .
    Brought to you courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

    The second song is Darryl Worley’s “Have You Forgotten?”:

    Have you forgotten how it felt that day
    To see your homeland under fire
    And her people blown away?
    Have you forgotten when those towers fell?
    We had neighbors still inside
    Going through a living hell
    And you say we shouldn’t worry ’bout Bin Laden
    Have you forgotten?

    I haven’t forgotten the men and women who make it possible for us to continue to live in freedom, and for me to raise my son in the greatest country in the world. I’m off to contribute to the USO. I hope you’ll join me!
